The Farm at Kovačnik
You are invited to join us for a work-based learning activity on Friday, 15 October 2021, at the Farm pri Kovačniku, Planica 9, Fram.
The Association Epeka, Soc. Ent., within the framework of the project “Farm – a place of diversity”, financed by the European Fund for Rural Development under sub-measure 16.9, is preparing the first activity aimed at integrating vulnerable groups into the labour market through participation in farm activities. The first set of activities in the project, which will be carried out in March 2020, will be mainly aimed at familiarising the project team, in particular the agricultural holdings, with the content of the project, and adapting the training methodology to the target groups and skills of the agricultural holdings involved. The project is 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, which enable the transfer of knowledge between all participants and also between educators. 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 Gorkega ulica 34, 2000 Maribor, at 7 am.
Participation in the activity is free of charge and includes lunch at the venue.The activity will be held in accordance with the recommendations of the NIJZ. Participation is subject to the PCT condition.

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