Eugea is an Italian acronym for ecology, urban gardens, and environment, originally a spin-off from the University of Bologna, it was set up by entomology researchers and teachers with the aim of bringing nature back into cities.
To achieve this we provide useful instruments for private ecology, by spreading and marketing organic pest control techniques for recreating and protecting public and private green areas in residential centres.
The product line includes:
- Gardens of Eugea, providing flower seeds high in nectar that will attract butterflies and other useful insects, produced in a controlled production chain (FSC printing process) with hand assembly and consignment through a social cooperative for work integration of individuals with psychic limitations.
- Tree Marathon - A Tree For The Future (www.treemarathon.it).
From September to March, Eugea promotes the sale and cultivation of trees suitable for growing on balconies and terraces in our cities, thus helping to reduce CO2 in the urban context. This project involves school pupils who can participate first person in caring for and growing young trees.
