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
A small successful food market initiative in Sweden used EAFRD funding to help migrants develop their skills, find employment and set up their own business.
In Sweden, local non-profit associations, encouraged and supported by the public sector, are carrying out the building of broadband infrastructure in the countryside.
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 cooperative association in Sweden received EAFRD support to offer a tailored course aimed at immigrants, building on their experience of rural life and improving their language skills to increase their prospects of finding work.
