An example of how afforestation allows for the development and maintenance of farm lands where crop cultivation is almost impossible.
Projects & Practice
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
EAFRD supported the successful development of a local brand in a mountainous area in Lower Silesia, Poland. It enabled the local population to develop its unique cultural diversity into a successful, integrated touristic product.
