Support from the Swedish Rural Development Programme helped improve accessibility for visitors in a restored municipal nature reserve.
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.
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
An organic mountain farm uses indigenous breeds to produce high-quality meat, while preserving the local environment and genetic resources.
