A rural women’s association used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to organise wool processing training courses and to create employment opportunities by valorising wool, a by-product of sheep meat production.
Projects & Practice
Two young farmers set up a hydroponic facility to produce high quality green fodder for livestock in the Canary Islands.
In order to maintain the traditional activity of extensive sheep and cattle grazing, the government of Andalusia created a pilot training programme on pastoralism for those that wanted to pursue a new career.
A farm producing flowers used RDP support to purchase new equipment and a tractor, thus achieving its goal to enhance and diversify its production.
