As part of the operation “Farm – a space of diversity”, funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, we held a promotional and educational event on Monday, July 7, 2020, at the Tourist and Eco Farm Pri Baronu.

Farm – Place of Diversity is a project intended to increase the capacity of agricultural holdings in the field of work with vulnerable groups with the aim of their social activation and faster reintegration into society and the labor market. The intergenerational component and educational approaches that enable the transfer of knowledge between all participants as well as educators will also be emphasized. The latter will have social benefits for the included farms and other farms that decide to carry out such activities, especially with the possibility of secondary economic benefits. The Pri Baronu farm, the Kovačnik farm and the Trankovec farm and the Association Epeka, Soc. Ent., Youth Cooperative are participating in the project, so.p.

At this training, which was the tenth this year, we learned about permaculture and picked cherries on the farm, from which organic juices and jams will be produced.

Project was co-financed by the European agricultural fund for rural development.
