Summary of the project
The Plantei Eu calendar provides knowledge on agricultural projects for individuals, families and farmers and stimulates people for sustainable agricultural and forestry practices in both urban and rural settings. It will be a printed calendar, with an associated website, where users can get more detailed information on agricultural practices, create an online calendar, and also access a national seed exchange database. It aims to gather and simplify knowledge, creating a tool that is easy to consult and use on a day-to-day basis, introducing new farmers to sustainable agricultural practices. It also aims to promote dialogue with farmers who have gradually replaced ancestral agricultural techniques with more invasive techniques.
The focus is the creation and conservation of native forest areas, the recovery of landscapes and ecosystems and the promotion of healthy and sustainable agricultural practices. With user feedback and target group tracking, we hope to analyze the effectiveness of our suggestions and gradually improve platform and content. The geographical area of initial intervention is Montemor-o-Novo.
- Farmers, landowners, curious about the themes, residents of Montemor-o-Novo and neighboring municipalities
- Environmental and sustainable production-consumption associations and projects
The project produced an Almanaque with twelve themes which were considered essential for understanding the role of an agroforestry and the importance of small interventions that anyone can apply through simple techniques. The construction of the contents of the Almanaque was worked on and improved according to the space available and the simplification of the information, always encouraging the use of the website and social networks to find deeper knowledge. The project was disseminated on the social networks and the distribution of the Almanaque was done by schools and learning communities, as well as producers and new land owners who expressed an interest and need to access this knowledge. The action reached directly 10.500 people.
