The Finnish Natural Resources Institute used EAFRD funding to develop the production of mushrooms for food and medicine to give forest owners an alternative income source.
Projects & Practice
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
A winemaking cooperative in France’s Jura region used EAFRD funding to develop a bio-purification system for managing waste in an environmentally sustainable way.
A Romanian farm specialised in crop production invested in modernisation activities to expand its production capacity. As a result, it created job opportunities for the local Roma community.
This LEADER-funded project created several small wetlands and helped raise awareness of and interest in water protection among landowners. It also contributed to increasing the amount of available water in the island of Gotland.
