An example of a LEADER financed local festival that became a tool to promote cultural heritage and create the conditions necessary for sustainable local development.
Projects & Practice
A small Estonian organic farm used EAFRD funding to scale up its production of herbs by investing in new machinery and upgrading buildings to help the business to grow.
A cooperative in Greece set up a fully-automated production line for 100% natural pomegranate juice and fostered a spirit of cooperation among its members.
Natural potential of rural areas often remains unexploited. In Estonia the construction of a water themed park generated interest in the countryside and attracted visitors through promoting eco-tourism and environmental education.
