A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
Projects & Practice
The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
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.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
