About "Associazione KORA"

Associazione Kora was founded in August 2015 to help young people learn about nature, different cultures, and society. They do this through special projects. Kora works with programs like Erasmus + and the European Solidarity Corps to organize activities like training courses, youth exchanges, and volunteering projects.

Kora is located at La Buona Terra school farm, which is the first educational farm in Italy. They've been around for over 30 years, teaching kids, teens, and adults about farming and nature.
