Projects & Practice
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.
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.
The Deák family used EAFRD support to convert a farm into a mansion house that provides services based on the old traditional rural way of life while setting up a network of local suppliers.
