A young farmer with reduced mobility used support from the Rural Development Programme (RDP) to expand his organic lavender farm and create jobs for people with disabilities.
Projects & Practice
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
A group of young agronomists combined RDP support with innovative financial solutions like crowdfunding to develop a self-sufficient farm growing local, quality organic products.
A series of seminars to create opportunities for formal and tacit knowledge transfer between experienced farmers and newcomers to agriculture.
A young female farmer used RDP support to develop a farm business that would provide her with sufficient income in order to become a full time farmer.
The project has enabled the living-lab, Josenea which is focused on organic farming, to collect bio-waste from neighbours and transform it into compost to fertilise their crops, with environmental, economic and social benefits.
