The aim of the project is to promote community life and backyard farming among bush farms. These would play the role of pantry for cities again and we can bring the local farmers into position and as a result of the community programmes the urban demand and rural offer can meet. The popularity of local products will increase.
To support the integration of debt-ridden families moving to bush farms and help them to become farmers.
Target group of the project is the population of bush farms near Nyíregyháza and impoverished families forced to change their living place or families willing to do farming as their own wish.
During the project there will be community-building activities, we look for farmers to play the role of community mentors and we popularize community farming. We hold public forums for farmers where experienced farmers can share their knowledge and help the process to become a farmer in practice.
As a result of the project community life develops, gets new impetus in some communities of bush farms and help the living of more families thanks to the practical activities and supporting communities.
