OfficineGreen is a project created to give a first strong signal nell’Alto Vicentino. An area rich in resources, but equally virtuous in our commitment to eco-sustainability, so far without a Festival, that could become a moment for confrontation and in-depth study for the population.

Thanks to moments of information, participation, promotion, comparison, reflection, fun and networking, we have given life to a three-day full immersion with a precise and concrete goal, a real REDUCTION WASTE in daily habits.
