  • We participated in a meeting on Farmers Ecological Knowledge from 4 to 6 October 2018. It was organised by GEYSER association and 6 regional natural parks in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (Sud) region in France with partners from Spain, Romania and Tunisia. This was an opportunity to discover the local territories experiences (on water management, promotion of old fruit varieties, agro-ecological practices etc), to promote exchanges between participants in order to enrich their practices but also to study the possibilities of co-operation on FEK between the participant countries. A future cooperation is on study.
