The #ApeOperosa workshop was inaugurated in Agrigento

Safeguarding the Sicilian black bee and promoting social inclusion.

The #ApeOperosa workshop was inaugurated in Agrigento

On March 2nd, the small carpentry laboratory of the Al Kharub Social Cooperative was inaugurated in the Villaseta neighborhood of Agrigento as part of the #ApeOperosa project. The initiative was funded by The Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani through the “Inclusive Restart” grant and community crowdfunding.

The #ApeOperosa project involved the renovation and furnishing of a space in the municipality of Agrigento in Villaseta, which has been turned into a small carpentry workshop where beekeeping equipment is built. The laboratory aims to safeguard the Sicilian black bee and reduce social inequalities through the employment of people who live in situations of vulnerability. The artisanal activity will be carried out by young people in vulnerable situations, offering them training and professional opportunities.

The #ApeOperosa project has achieved the objectives of inclusion and sustainability outlined in the “Inclusive Restart” grant, with a triple focus: social, through the reduction of inequalities; environmental, through the protection of the Sicilian black bee; and cultural, through the promotion of artisanal practices passed down to young people.

The inauguration was attended by various actors involved in the #ApeOperosa project, including the Al Kharub social cooperative, The Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani, the municipality of Agrigento, as well as community organizations with social objectives in the Villaseta neighborhood, such as the local church, schools, and various associations.
