Castelli International school is nestled amongst vineyards and olive groves and provides the ideal backdrop to spark children’s interest in the art of growing and producing fresh healthy food. The Earth to Table project aims to teach children the importance of growing food, and how much healthier and tastier fresh fruit and vegetables can be.
