Synergy Project – Training in Agriculture, nutrition & Old Crafts

Duration: 20th Sept 2017 – 19th Sept 2019

the involved Organisations

Bildungshaus Heideland HVHS (Lead partner, Germany)

The partners in the project are coming together through EU Erasmus Plus, because of common interests in supporting rural areas. The purpose of this project is the creation of work-based modules (learning units presented using video or power point presentations) on different rural subjects like

  • cultural heritage and archaeology
  • sheep herding and wool processing
  • organic low budget cooking with local ingredients
  • different local raw materials like honey and vegetable oils (from bee keeping to olive and almond harvesting and processing)
  • horticulture (herbs, fruit trees and vegetable growth)
  • traditional building, fencing, wall building
  • different handcrafts (Lefkara lace, embroidery etc) and others

Expected outcomes:

The involvement of different partners from north, west, east and south Europe will enable us to show and reflect on very regional approaches on the same subject and to provide this knowledge to others by putting it into easy to access learning units. Each partner has identified a “specialism” that is useful to some or all of the others.

We are hoping to create useful modules to enable everybody who is interested to cook traditional low budget but organic meals, pick up useful advice on bee keeping and vegetable and growing, restore local infrastructure, do heritage reconstructions, get involved in community archaeology etc.
