Shared vegetable gardens

We organise working groups for people interested in learning or teaching traditional and experimental cultivation techniques in order to spread the culture of the self production of food, provide guests and interested people with fresh, genuine, economic food – with no environmental impact (km 0).

Activities and internships for sheltered groups

For an enriching stay in their own life path or rehabilitation, staying outdoors is as important as stimulating individual capabilities through a deep connection with nature. The educator of Rifugio La Sciverna is open to adjust the schedule and organization of the activities according to the age and the need of the groups.


The Association Cascina Granbego organizes cultural and recreational activities in the premises of Rifugio La Sciverna and in other spots of Liguria.
