From the Earth to the territory. For a market without traders' The Eagle Transition Town

Transition Town L'Aquila (L'aquila meand The Eagle in Italian)

From the Earth to the territory. For a market without traders' The Eagle Transition Town: "New purchases local" is a Group Purchasing Solidarity (GAS) on the territory of L'Aquila. Like all GAS, as has also our intention to buy food directly from producers - mainly producers and local - can guarantee fresh goods, genuine fruit of the earth that is under our very eyes. We are a group of citizens and families who believe it is possible to realize a market without the 'merchants', which has as its basis a real and immediate relationship between producers and consumers based on direct contact, mutual trust, on' meet and respect. From farm to table, without intermediaries: we believe it should be the farmer's market, direct sales, ie a place where people can buy quality products, local and seasonal, directly from farmers, saving money and contributing to the reduction of emissions pollutants due to the philosophy of Km 0. Join the GAS means to socialize with other families and understanding the needs of local producers. Actions even more valuable today in our country subjected to deformation and in need of new projects so that they see the reconstruction of urban centers but also a profound reflection of the relationship with it has and will continue to have those who live it. In recent years various consortia are born to replace potatoes, wheat, corn varieties, with the spirit of recovery and a healthy relationship rediscovery of the potential of our heritage and our lands. Those same lands that are subject or after the earthquake risk of expropriation and subtracting agricultural use. Afresh together consumers and producers together to learn and also means to recognize, to defend our land, the land and the so-called quality of life.

This is translated by Google so apologies but its very interesting to see that in other European communities are going through the same processes.
