The Agrecol Family Meeting Spring 2014 took place in Traben-Trabach located at the middle section of river Mosel from May 25th to June 1st, 2014. The theme was "Limitations and Potentials of Ecological Viniculture on Steep Slopes".

Accommodation: Mittelmosel-Jugendherberge, Hirtenpfad 6, 56841 Traben-Trarbach.

 

 

Our meeting in autumn 2013 took place as planned in Germerode from October 18 to 20. The theme was "Smallholder farmers adapting to climate change". It was a small, but very active group of participants who presented experiences and suggestions towards the theme. During dicussions, it became obvious, that for smallholders and pastoralists in developing countries, climate change is only one of several stress factors such as land grabbing, fluctuations of produce and input prices, shortage of labour or invasive plants an animals.

Dear Agrecol Community, dear friends,

The Family meeting spring 2012 took place in Schmochtitz near Bautzen in Oberlausitz, Saxony, from May 17 to 20, 2012. The theme of the meeting was:

The Conflict between Agriculture and Protection of Nature exemplified by the most recent migration of Wolves into the Area of Lausitz.

 

The working session of Autumn 2011 took place from October 14 to October 16, 2011 in Stuttgart. The theme of the meeting was  CO2 trade and its effects on sustainable land use and small holder agriculture.

Below we enclose the papers presented during the meeting, and some further documents which might be of interest.

The meeting, with families, took place from June 2 to 5, 2011 in Kehl on River Rhine. Theme: Fishery, River bed regulation and flood management

 
We held the working session of 2010 at Dottenfelder Hof in Bad Vilbel from October 15 to 17. The theme was Soil fertility. Normally, the farm does not host any workshops, but for us, or rather the main organiser, Johannes Kotschi, the farm community made an exception. Accommodation was spartanic, and we prepared breakfast and supper ourselves at the farm-school. However, living and working together for two intensive days created a very warm atmosphere.
