A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
Introducing a new forest management method that ensures the rapid and natural rejuvenation of harvested forests.
Promoting extensive grazing in a communal area to enhance biodiversity in and around a Natura 2000 designated area.
Using LEADER support to set up an electric car sharing scheme in a rural community.
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.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
