Agrosolidaris - Solidarity Organic Farming Project

DEFINITION OF THE PROJECT

The Solidarity Organic Farming Project consists of two linked phases, which aim to boost professional qualifications and facilitate the employability of people in situations of social exclusion (young people, women, immigrants, long-term unemployed, etc.) by providing training in organic farming and provide support to the students for the subsequent integration into associative companies producing organic products.

The project is carried out by mean of a concert with City Councils and beneficiaries that are interested in the execution of their municipality. They collaborate in the management of the phases, the selection and supervision of the students, and participate in the financing of the project.
