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.
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.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
