Project at CCRES Research facility, Sveti Rok, Croatia.

Posted by Zeljko Serdar 5 months ago

Project at CCRES Research facility, Sveti Rok, Croatia. exists to… Innovate a path toward a more just, resilient and healthy food system (building local wealth and food security); Welcome, support, and value the expertise of new, and transitioning farmers in a shared economy; and Demonstrate perennial agriculture’s capacity to heal the land and care for community. In 2013, we acquired the degraded corn-on-corn farmland and are restoring it to health by keeping the soil covered, planting perennials, cleaning up waterways, and adding wetlands. We are also working to improve production and developing markets for apples, cherries and hazelnuts, and conducting on-farm research to improve the profitability of poultry. We provide training in poultry-centered perennial agriculture. Community members use the chicken coops on our farm to raise their own flocks. Local multigenerational families use garden plots to grow their own food for home consumption or for sale. We also provide perennials from our nurseries to area farmers and share our farm equipment with our neighbors. We provide employment for people to connect their neighbors to policies that help advance healthy food access. We build urban-rural partnerships with an equity lens through our work with local food security groups. We have partnered with farmers, to test a pilot easement program that will keep marginal lands in active perennial agricultural production. We work with individual farmers to secure land and patient financing. A growing number of farmers and farmland owners are using their land to address the climate crisis. We have created a hub of those folks, who work together to share best practices. We partner with scientists and technical service providers to document the climate benefits of our farm’s path to resiliency and the enhanced water quality and habitat that results from perennial agriculture.

Zeljko Serdar : Permaculture is a set of principles that integrates land, resources, people, and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies. It aims to imitate and recreate natural ecosystems through the use of closed-loop and no waste techniques. It has gained increasing visibility in recent years, with the rise of growing environmental threats and the deterioration of ecosystems.

Where intensive agriculture generally results in high productivity at the expense of biodiversity, Permaculture indeed offers alternatives as it is a holistic approach that encompasses a complete spectrum of regenerative concepts, systems, and solutions. In that sense, it is at the core of ethical education. Z.S.
