Beautiful Landscape

TransFarmers

Transforming Farmers’ communities

TransFarmers promotes exchanges between interested Portuguese and Spanish farmers who wish to learn more about best practices in almond production and which sustainable practices to apply in order to restore the landscape of more prosperous regions with a stronger economy, biodiversity and natural resources.

The starting point is to promote skills and leadership in the farming community to build a network, discuss challenges, and agree on common solutions through problem-solving exercises.

TransFarmers focuses on intensive almond farms because of the high landscape implications, economic potential and extensive application of successful interventions to preserve local heritage.

Activities

Among the various activities planned in the scope of TransFarmers, the following stand out:

1. The development of two case studies based on obstacles faced by farmers and rural communities due to intensive almond tree cultivation, and identification of successful best practices;
2. The organization of two workshops, to create a network and promote synergies between all stakeholders (farmers, companies, research units, municipalities);
3. To create a portfolio of best practices; 
4. Organize a final event (The Rural Pride Day) for community involvement.

Participants will present results, problem-solving strategies and integrated approaches while celebrating their culture (gastronomy, traditions, folk songs).

 

Objectives

The main objectives of this program are 

1. Develop case studies (Idanha & Almeria) to identify challenges and solutions faced by almond producers.
2. Identify synergies and create networks among stakeholders, with workshops.
3. Develop and disseminate a portfolio of good practices.

4. Organise a final event to promote the community and its cultural aspects, and share results and strategies.

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
