As part of the meeting agenda, we had the opportunity to visit the testing ground at Mariendal, where we engaged in insightful discussions.
The primary objective of this testing ground is to develop and document an innovative approach to food production that not only enhances biodiversity but also sequesters CO2 in the soil. This endeavor places agroforestry and regenerative farming methods at the forefront of our efforts. Furthermore, it is the objective to involve local citizens in the project to ensure their support for a sustainable, eco-friendly transition. We aim to make it easier for citizens to access climate-friendly food and provide them with hands-on experiences in the field, including harvesting and learning how to use homegrown vegetables.
