‘Nos Oignons’ is an association that supported the preparation and implementation of three RDP funded projects that promote social farming in Wallonia.
Projects & Practice
A family farm invested in a biogas plant to produce renewable energy while also purchasing a new tomato harvester to improve the farm’s overall income.
A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
In a rural area that is rather disadvantaged and in risk of abandonment, EAFRD and ESF support were combined in a project for the integration of migrants through work training.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
A biofuel production and packaging line was established in an olive growing region of Greece. The waste residues are used to produce biofuel (PELLET) offering considerable economic and environmental benefits.
