Research and Projects

2019 - 2020 

We are a learning farm and are constantly working on experiments, research and projects to make our farm and the natural areas more diverse and resilient. Below you can find an overview of the topics we currently work on.

We co-create our research with students and the farm, which means that this list will be updated throughout the year and is depending on the urgency and relevance on the farm and preference of the students.
