We are very excited to announce that the new project “Terra Graeca: Small Farms to Market” has just started on Lemnos and Kythera, in order to contribute to the sustainable development of the islands’ food systems and to empower farmers.
Preserving and promoting our agrifood heritage is at the same time a major challenge and a great opportunity for fostering sustainable and resilient food systems.
Thus, with the support of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, MedINA, building on the insights gained in recent years on Lemnos (Terra Lemnia) and Kythera (Terra Kytheria), will implement a series of innovative actions:
(a) Promotion of the Terra Vita certification and certified products for the valorisation and added value of these products.
(b) Support for small-scale producers to exploit the potential of on farm artisanal processing, via capacity building workshops and consultancy.
(c) Development of an agrifood tourism experience, contributing to the promotion of Lemnos as a food destination. We are going to create a collaborative network of various professionals, organize training workshops in agritourism and develop a pilot food trail.
More detailed information and a briefing both for the interested producers and professionals will be available soon.
The project “Terra Graeca: Small Farm to Market” is implemented with the support of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation.
Together we envision thriving local communities in productive and healthy agroecosystems!
