Farm at Kovačnik

We are pleased that the epidemiological picture in the country has improved to the point where measures to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 allow activities to resume. You are invited to join us for the first post-epidemic training activity, which will take place on Friday, 29 May 2020, at the Farm at Kovačnik, Planica 9, Fram.

The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is preparing the first activity aimed at integrating vulnerable groups into the labour market through participation in farm activities, within the framework of the project “Farm – a place of diversity”, funded by the European Fund for Rural Development under sub-measure 16.9. The project is being implemented in cooperation with Kovačnik, Baron and Trankovec farms and the Epeka Youth Cooperative. The project aims to increase the capacity of agricultural holdings to work with vulnerable groups with a view to their social activation and faster reintegration into society and the labour market. We also emphasise the intergenerational component and the educational approaches that enable the transfer of knowledge between all participants and also between the trainers. Within the activities, you will get to know the work on the farm better and, through an oral evaluation of the activities, you will be able to co-design the educational approach in future activities.

The planned activity will take place from 7 am to 5 pm. Transport to the site will be provided for all interested participants. The meeting point is Koroška 8, 2000 Maribor, at 7 am.

All participants are urged to take care of their own health and the health of others during the event and to follow the NIJZ guidelines on limiting the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infections.

For more information, please contact us by email and on 030 610 606.

The project is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
