Rural Development Programme (RDP) support enabled the reforestation of land and ornamental public spaces with native forest species, while promoting environmental awareness, education and training.
Projects & Practice
A results-based agri-environment scheme (AES) for permanent grasslands in Baden-Württemberg.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
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.
A project that demonstrates how agri-environment support can significantly help the protection of the environment while also increasing the profitability of a farm.
