Agricultural Projects

 

Sustainability is one of the central association-principles of BRAVEAURORA. With this in mind, the former BRAVEAURORA volunteer Eva Pieber has conceptualised an agricultural project for – and together with – BRAVEAURORA, which was realised in February 2011.


The entire agricultural project is built on participation of the village and was developed in a comprehensive landscape-concept by Eva Pieber, two of her colleagues and a Professor of the University of Graz.


Eva Pieber spend several weeks in 2010 and 2011 in Guabuliga to coordinate details with the village chief and local farmers and to exchange views with other local experts, such as our cooperation partner Youth Harvest Foundation in Bolatanga, who are professionals in the area of sustainable farming.
