Spring has come - the nature on Crete awakes

Yesterday our partners on Crete started evaluating the effectiveness of winter-cereals use for weed control in the vineyards. Despite the relatively heavy winter, the flora development is impressive.

Christos Tsagaridis, Nikos Kontaxakis, Leo Manolakis (members of St August winegrowers group of Lyrarakis wines) & Kostas Bouyouris (Local Food Experts) discuss about Soil Health issues and native flora of the unique vineyard “Kefala”, while sheep manage the rest of the weed population in the vineyard.

The project

Crete - first steps towards a sustainable food destination

In this project local farmers are brought to a better understanding of sustainable management methods and are connected with local tourism professionals. The link will be used to identify and exploit synergies between food producers and holiday makers.
