Val Venosta - Winschgau Valley
Vista da Malles, in una giornata senza sole (sigh!). Dal Passo di Resia, dove sorge l'Adige arriva fino alle porte di Merano, costituendo il lembo più occidentale della Provincia di Bolzano. Confina a nord con l'Austria, a ovest con la Svizzera, a sud con la Lombardia ed il Trentino e ad est con il Burgraviato. La valle è prima in direzione nord-sud, poi (da Sluderno) in direzione ovest-est. È sormontata dal Gruppo dell'Ortles a sud-ovest e dalle Alpi Venoste a nord-est. L'Ortles (3.906 m s.l.m.) tra le valli di Solda e Trafoi (comune di Stelvio) è la montagna più alta del Trentino-Alto Adige. Ai suoi piedi si trova il Passo dello Stelvio (2.760 m s.l.m.) con la nota strada panoramica particolarmente importante per la storia del ciclismo su strada. La Venosta è la zona con meno precipitazioni delle alpi orientali. Caratteristico è il Monte Sole, sul versante meridonale delle Alpi Venoste, che mostra un clima arido-stepposo e una vegetazione unica in tutto l'arco alpino. Solo dal dopoguerra in poi una politica di riforestazione ha cambiato volto a gran parte di questo territorio, anche snaturandolo per via della preferenza accordata a una monocoltura di pino nero, estraneo alla vegetazione autoctona. Secondo una leggenda che ancora oggi viene presa per vera da molti venostani, ma chiaramente smentita dagli storici, il Monte Sole sarebbe stata anticamente ricoperte di vaste foreste di querce, che sarebbero state tagliate per fornire il legname necessario alla costruzione di Venezia.[senza fonte] Il fondovalle fino alle bonifiche asburgiche del 18./19. secolo era in prevalenza paludoso, dopodiché la Val Venosta arrivò a meritarsi l'appellativo di "granaio del Tirolo" per la conclamata fertilità dei suoi terreni. Oggi è caratterizzata da estesissime piantagioni di mele, che rendono l'agricoltura ancora l'attività più diffusa (un quarto della popolazione attiva vi trova occupazione). L'altro motore dell'economia locale è il turismo, sia estivo che invernale, anche se la Venosta non è così ricca di infrastrutture turistiche come altre zona dell'Alto Adige. Piccole industrie sono presente in quasi tutti i comuni della valle. Inoltre vi è una rete capillare di aziende artigianali e commerciali a gestione familiare. Verso il passo di Resia si trova la diga del lago di Resia, il più grande lago dell'Alto Adige, dove il campanile del paese sommerso di Curon Venosta spunta dalle acque (il paese venne ricostruito situato più in alto dopo la costruzione della diga nel 1950). Sulla destra dell'Adige, fino in Lombardia, ampia zona del territorio è incluso nel Parco nazionale dello Stelvio. La ferrovia della Val Venosta, la ex linea Merano-Malles delle Ferrovie dello Stato, fu da queste classificata come "ramo secco" e chiusa nel 1990. Dopo essere passato nelle mani della provincia di Bolzano e profondamente restaurata, è ora di nuovo in funzione dal 5 maggio del 2005. Fino al primo '800 specialmente nell'Alta Val Venosta la lingua della popolazione era ancora il romancio e gli scambi culturali più intensi avvenivano con le valli svizzere di Monastero e dell'Engadina, dove si parlava la stessa lingua. Tuttavia, gli abitanti di queste valli si erano convertiti al protestantesimo e questo portò il governo asburgico a politiche di germanizzazione forzata della Venosta a partire dall'epoca della Controriforma. L'eredità ladina si rispecchia ancora in molti vocaboli del dialetto locale, toponimi e cognomi. (fonte: Wikipedia) View from Malles in a day without sunshine (sigh!). From Reschen Pass, where the Tyrol comes up on the outskirts of Merano, and is the westernmost corner of the Province of Bolzano. Bordered to the north by Austria, on the west by Switzerland to the south with Lombardy and Trentino, and to the east with the Burggrafenamt. The valley is the first in a north-south, then (by Sluderno) towards the west-east. It is surmounted by the Group Ortles southwest Venosta Alps and north-east. The Ortles (3,906 m asl) between the valleys of Solda and Trafoi (Joint Stelvio) is the highest mountain in the Trentino-Alto Adige. At its foot lies the Passo dello Stelvio (2760 m asl) with the known scenic route is particularly important for the history of cycling on the road. The Venosta is the area with less precipitation of the eastern Alps. Characteristic is the Monte Sole, on the meridonale Venosta Alps, which shows a climate-arid steppe vegetation and a unique all over the Alps. Only after the war on a policy of reforestation activities, has changed much of this territory, even distorting due to the preference given to a monoculture of black pine, outside vegetation. Legend has it that even today is taken for true by many venostani but clearly disproved by historians, the Monte Sole was once covered with vast forests of oak, which would have been felled to supply timber needed for the construction of Venice. [Without source ] The valley floor to the rehabilitation of the Habsburg 18./19. century was mostly marshland, then Val Venosta came to deserve the nickname of "granary of Tyrol for the confirmation of its land fertility. Today is characterized by extensive plantations of apples, which make agriculture even more widespread the activity (one fourth of the population finds employment). The other engine of the local economy is tourism, both summer and winter, although the Venosta is not as rich as other tourist area of South Tyrol. Small industries are present in almost all municipalities in the valley. There is also a network of firms and commercial craft a family. Going step Reschen is the dam of Lake Reschen, the largest lake in South Tyrol, where the bell tower of the submerged village of Curon Venosta check by the water (the town was rebuilt located further up after the construction of the dam in 1950). On the right dell'Adige up in Sydney, a large area of land is included in the Stelvio National Park. The railway in Val Venosta, the former line Merano-Mals State Railways, was by these classified as "dry branch," and closed in 1990. After passing into the hands of the Province of Bolzano and profoundly restored, is now back in operation since May 5th 2005. Until the first'800 especially in the Alta Val Venosta the language of the population was still Romansch and cultural exchanges were more intense with the valleys of Switzerland and the Engadine Monastery, where he spoke the same language. However, the inhabitants of these valleys had converted to Protestantism and that brought the Habsburg Empire in government policies of forced germanization Venosta starting from the time of the Counter Reformation. The ladina heritage is reflected even in many of the local dialect vocabulary, place names and surnames. (source: Wikipedia)

Help Your Hood – CafeSmart 2018
via WordPress ift.tt/2vhfK7j Drinking coffee and impacting people positively is literally Five Senses’ two favourite things. So it’s no surprise we get incredibly excited when CafeSmart rolls around – circle Friday 3 August on your calendars! One of the things we love about CafeSmart, is that funds raised go to grassroots projects that help homeless or support at risk people -in their local area! Here’s just some of the great things achieved through last year’s campaign: Yellow Bernard, Hobart TAS – $1686 raised ($991 via coffee sales and $695 customer donations) Helped Support: Tassie Mums are an entirely volunteer run not-for-profit group, passionate about providing Tasmanian babies and children with the most basic essentials, they collect, sort and bundle donations of baby and children’s clothing (and other small baby items) to re-distribute via social service networks that help to support Tasmanian families. Part of the CafeSmart grant went to helping with storage arrangements while the rest helped fill the gaps in the clothing bundles, buying undies etc. Two Skinny Pickles, Surry Hills NSW – $306 raised Helped Support: Pets in the Park run a free pet health clinic at St Johns Church, Darlinghurst. At each pet clinic veterinarians and vet nurses provide free health checks, vaccinations, flea treatment, worming treatment and basic medication for pets owned by people experiencing homeless or at risk. Many homeless people or those at risk lead a difficult and isolated life but for those with pets, these companion animals act as their refuge and can provide them with a better quality of life while they are experiencing homelessness. The benefits of this bond between the owner and pet are immense, including increased social, emotional and physical health. The Pets in the Park outreach program aims to help take care of their pets and to sustain this companionship by reducing the financial burden of these costs to ensure the health of their pets. Sons of Mary, Brighton VIC- $647 raised Helped Support: Emerge Women and Children’s Support Network is the only specialist outreach domestic violence service located in Melbourne’s Middle Southern Metropolitan Region. They deliver crisis services, including crisis accommodation and case management, therapeutic programs for children and women affected by domestic violence, including early intervention, educative and supportive programs, and art therapy for young women and children. The CafeSmart grant was used for therapeutic support for traumatised children. Therapists purchased much needed materials and were able to organise confidence building excursions. Bunker, Milton QLD- $421 raised Helped Support: West End Community House has been running a free Community Breakfast for many years. It began as a funded breakfast to link in with local boarding house tenants but in recent years has had to find its own funding. Now they are getting eggs donated ( 9 dozen each week), the breakfasts tend to cost about $125 each week. The CafeSmart grant of $1250 covered 10 weeks of breakfasts. Betty & Dave’s Espresso, Mount Lawley – $381 raised Helped Support: Wungening Aboriginal Corporation specialises in helping young people who are homeless on the streets and are actively using substances. The organisation was set up as other organisations were not addressing this issue effectively and offering the treatment and prevention programs needed. Young people are often overlooked as they do not fit into the mainstream treatment options. The CafeSmart funds were used to out-reach and actively engage with young people and offer them a pathway of early intervention, alcohol and drug treatment and support.
