For the second time, the nationwide Organic Field Days (Öko-Feldtage) will take place on 3 and 4 July at the Hessian State Domain Frankenhausen, showing how ecological agriculture is developing.
The Field Days are a good opportunity for (prospective) organic farmers to inform themselves about and exchange information on innovative methods and research in plant production and animal husbandry and to discuss economic policy issues.
BioFinanz, the joint project of IfLS, Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development (Hochschule für Nachhaltige Entwicklung Eberswalde – HNEE), Association of Organic Processors, Wholesalers and Retailers (Bundesverband Naturkost Naturwaren e.V. – BNN) and Foundation for Ecology & Farming (Stiftung Ökologie & Landbau – SÖL) on alternative financing models in organic agriculture and food production, is also represented there.
Simone Sterly (IfLS) will participate in the panel discussion Opportunities for new organic products: Opening doors with innovative ideas for marketing and financing on 03 July from 16.00 in the BÖLN Forum.
On top of that, interested parties can also visit the BioFinanz booth in the BÖLN tent on both days.
