In Latin language the word means “he lives”. In biology, the habitat encloses the set of environmental conditions necessary for the survival of the species, it shows “the place” where a species can live and reproduce itself, ensuring quality of life.
It is the number of trees and bushes planted in 2013/14 as first productive company action. Now there are more than 5000 plants raised, including oaks, hornbeams, walnut trees, elms and other native shrub-like specimens. Together they are making a marvellous new habitat between groves, rural hedges, buffer zones, vineyards, orchards and biologic cultivations.
Therefore Habitat 3650 is our place, the place we want to tend and take care of for the future of our offspring and the Earth.
It is a new model of sustainable development, which originates from anenvironmental redevelopment pilot project, based on interdisciplinarity as instrument of research and innovation.
Organic agriculture doesn’t only represent a way to cultivate the land for us, but a different attitude to take care of it, giving back poetry to life.
From here, our activities and services we offer take shape.
Habitat 3650 originates from an environmental redevelopment pilot project, based on interdisciplinarity as instrument of research and innovation.
The hospitality, the rural tourism, the educational farm become the instruments that allow to put these ideas into service.
The implemented crops complement each other in the biodiversity that generates the new habitat. The hand-raised groves, buffer zones, horbeam grove, vegetable garden and vineyard guarantee the uniqueness of quality of the final products, becoming a benefit to the proposed activities.
Agricultural Farm biological certified, Agriculturul Farm, Educational farm e Rural Tourism
The farm was born in 2012 from a pilot project of “redevelopment and environmental sustainability in an area of six ha (60.000 square meters) located between the cities of Venice and Martellago.. The holder from another sector, has felt the need to get closer to the earth and firmly believes that there is a great challenge to be taken for a better future of our territory so extraordinary but that over time has lost its cultural and cultural peculiarities.
The diversification and transformation of agricultural products are the cornerstones of the company, research, innovation and especially interdisciplinary development models.
Through the environmental requalification, the company preserves its “organic” production destination and becomes an educational, cultural, recreational and receptive tool in the territory. The idea is to create a large garden for the view but also for the taste, a kind of experimental agri-park in which coexist harmoniously the agricultural and productive function, the nature of places, art, culture. Teaching and the functions proper to receptivity.
Idea that implies the need to improve the naturalistic-environmental qualities of the landscape, the formal elements of the existing agro-forestry and vegetational context to make it pleasant, unique but above all capable of providing new aggregative stimuli, Popular and environmental awareness this place.
The location relatively far from the town, but at the same time very close to Venice, and the quiet of the site, make this area a special object for the realization over time of an “agri-garden” with strong natural values.
The project, clearly ambitious, will follow the times of nature, so that it is itself to guide the choices.
In 2015 the farm wins a cash prize by the Venice Chamber of Commerce during the EXPO competiton, for its sustainability and habitat requalification project. Through this it has been given birth to the creation of a first wooden artifact, inert and with zero emissions, which symbolizes, inside of the project itself and its structure, the company spirit, becoming an integrated element, multi-functional to the farm activities, sort of a lab-study of the carried out activities.
In the same year, the environmental redevelopment and sustainability pilot project has been pointed out in the “Places and Stories” route for “Venice to Expo” and is subject matter of research in some degree courses in the Politecnico of Milan.
Starting in 2019 the farm opened its project and its story to didactics and tourism hospitality.
Rural tourism represents itself by its own nature as an inter-disciplinary connection element with the organic farm.
The chance to be involved in the visit of big monuments close by, like Venice, Treviso, Padova, the Brenta Riviera with the Venetian Villas, the Asolan hills and Canova, Bassano del Grappa and many more, represents in its inter-disciplinarity an opportunity offered by the uniqueness of our area, through new, different paths where the study and research activities connect nature, environment, art, history, literature, food and wine.
Rural tourism offers a unique point of of view, of “approach”, of connection, a new and different way to get in contact with history, art, architecture but at the same time with nature and earth, elements from which everything originates.
Rural tourism becomes an occasion to experience unique moments, to catch new points of view, overlooks on our land that would not be otherwise possible through the usual and conventional tourist routes.
Arriving in Venice through nature, history, its true habitat. Find out new paths to experience an unique and complete experience, where the senses can be satisfied at 360 degrees. Where the word “taste” can be associated with food, art, architecture, history, landscape but also the style to do things the right way, in a sustainable, curious and fun manner.
To do environmental awareness activities, in synergy with the educational events. Moments of immersion where guests will live in close contact with the rural reality, catching its benefits. In the vineyard at the first light of dawn or at sunset, the harvest of small fruits and natural herbs to feel part of nature. Everything in full sharing with the owners in a jolly and natural atmosphere.
The educational farm portrays, together with rural tourism, by its own nature an interdisciplinary connection element with the organic farm.
To be involved in the activities of study and research in the laboratories, connecting nature, environment, art, history, food and wine, literature and sustainability. There are activities for children but mostly for adults as well.
The educational farm offers a point of view, a “haven”, a unique connection, a new and different way to get in touch with history, art, architecture but at the same time with nature and earth, element from which everything originates.
At Eco-cabin naturalistic-didactical strolls will be organized, along the buffer zones and woods with focused breaks in the meadows or clearings for detailed studies on the local flora and fauna and/or for observation experiences, naturalistic photographies and still-life drawing.
Practice of listening to the sounds of nature, of colors, of perfumes, visit to the vineyard, the grove and the hornbeam orchard.
The project of the landscape rebirth through soil settlement will be explained, as well as through the enrichment, the machinery, the rearing, the pruning, the harvesting of grapes, the aromatic herbs, the small fruits and flowers and their transformation into farm products: wine, preserves, and dried organic products.
Experiences of environmental consciousness will be available too, as well as reflections on nature and environment, on psychophysical wellness and personal growth related to dietary choices, life styles and health.
There will be speeches and specifical projects with the cooperation of specialists in various disciplines the have always cooperated with Habitat 3650.
The classes will have a common denominator that will be curiosity, the will to experiment and enjoy with seriousness and care.
