LANDSCHAFT ANPACKEN - 1st prize "Innovative Projects" category

In order to ensure the preservation and maintenance of species-rich habitats through traditional working techniques, the Landschaftspflegeverband Mittelfranken (LPV) has launched the LANDSCHAFT ANPACKEN training series. In cooperation with the Fachzentrum für Energie und Landtechnik Triesdorf and experienced farmers, the LPV has been qualifying volunteers since 2018 to create new biotopes and maintain regional expertise. Participants learn to plant meadow orchards, to clear rough grassland of shrubs and bushes, to maintain hedges professionally, to mow wet meadows and to handle agricultural equipment professionally. In addition, the training series enables agricultural businesses to establish a second foothold in landscape management. In 2021, LANDSCHAFT ANPACKEN was also recognized as an official project of the UN Decade of Biological Diversity.
