‘Nos Oignons’ is an association that supported the preparation and implementation of three RDP funded projects that promote social farming in Wallonia.
Projects & Practice
Developing a herd management tool to optimise efficiency and animal welfare on dairy farms.
This project created free outdoor recreational infrastructure for a range of age groups and motivated them to take up physical activity through workshops and presentations.
Bringing together public authorities, research institutes and farmers to explore low carbon emission production models in agriculture.
A slaughterhouse was established on the island of Bornholm to offer slaughtering facilities to small husbandry farms or for larger herds of sheep or cattle.
Developing an innovative model of local-level bio-waste.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
A rural business development and capacity building project with an emphasis on increasing revenue in the small-islands tourism industry of Denmark.
Supporting vulnerable people and facilitating their re-integration into society through small volunteer jobs on local farms.
In order to take advantage of the enormous potential of outdoor tourism, fostering cooperation and networking among the local actors is essential.
