Land Sharing for food and social good

Environmental sustainability, Poverty and social exclusion

The project promotes the reintroduction of old farming techniques that would support small multifunctional farms. The project targets disadvantaged people from rural and urban areas to connect within the intergenerational, organic cooperative and cultivate land using knowledge from older farmers. Due to the emphasis on multifunctionality the project will help to support wider sustainable rural development (e.g. sale of organic produce, providing jobs, year-round income through varied produce, tourism potential) as well as being environmentally sustainable.
