A LEADER project used artistic creations to increase the attractiveness of a remote rural area and stimulate economic activity.
A young female farmer used RDP support to set up a traditional backing oven and start selling organic bread in the local area.
A French hazelnut farm used EAFRD support to develop a visitor centre, helping boost direct sales and educate citizens on hazelnut production and processing.
Three French municipalities used EAFRD support to transform a former railway line into a leisure path for walking, cycling and horse riding.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
