The guided visit to the Mas Casas farmhouse, in Cruïlles, is a way to explain the importance of extensive farming and the use of natural resources and the local product consum.

The visit starts discovering the existing life in the first 30cm of land, which is where all the micro-organisms that generate life in the planet live, and the importance of shepherding to combat climate change.
