Various products will be tasted, produced and sold at the fair and the Association's promotional brochures will be distributed.
The workshops of the members of the association will be held from 12 noon; numerous forest laboratories for children, a mushroom identification laboratory with a guide, a laboratory for the production of natural cosmetics.
Environmental artist Falco will create an installation in the green area next to the curtain, which should become a sumptuous luminous object.
