On farm care is a new type of service which can help farms diversify while significantly contributing to a more natural rehabilitation process for people in need.
Projects & Practice
An ecovillage was developed on Sweden’s Gotland island using EAFRD funding, providing a model for environmentally-friendly accommodation, waste water treatment, food and energy production. The site is also a template for non-consumerist approaches.
A very small island in Sweden used EAFRD support to broaden the range of services offered by a village shop by building a café area and a kitchen.
A feasibility study was launched in order to set the foundations for turning an ancient crater lake into a driver for local development.
A small commune in Romania used EAFRD support to restore and promote its local landmark: a botanical garden, and design a training programme on environmental aspects for young farmers.
The ‘Mallu does the rounds’ project provided an easy-to-access medical service to people in rural areas of Finland using the Mallu bus.
