CAP funds for a young farmer support rural revitalisation in the Slovenian mountains
A project that combines research, environmental education and forestry practice and is aimed at small and medium-sized private forest owners who are severely affected by climate change.
This pan-Slovenian project is designed to combat the consequences of natural disasters that have affected forests across the country in the last six years. The project includes sustainable measures to restore damaged forests, adapting them to climate change, and is focused on areas that are under the greatest pressure.
A results-based agri-environment scheme (AES) for permanent grasslands in Baden-Württemberg.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
Refurbishment of a mountain path to stimulate economic activity and thus contribute to the revitalisation of the neighbouring rural areas.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
