A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
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.
An eco-farm implementing agri-environment-climate measures aims to foster ecosystem services and climate adaptation on-farm as well as promote wider uptake throughout the farming community.
Using Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to set up modern poplar plantations in response to the increasing demand from industry for high quality raw materials
The construction of two small water basins that minimise the risk of floods and offer a habitat that promotes biodiversity.
Restoring the production potential of damaged forests through clearing, afforestation and preservation of young forest stands.
