Municipality of Várbalog

Past, present and future of Várbalog is inseparably connected with nature, near-natural farming and the protection of the interest of nature. This area was once the model farm of the Monarchy, with horse-drawn light rail and its own power station. The image of the landscape is still stipulated by the windbreaks which were planted in the 19th century, and the benefits of which are rediscovered by modern organic farming, and it even supports their application. It is no coincidence that, in addition to its water and nutrient binding effect, it provides habitat for many rare and protected plant and animal species. The complete area is included in the Natura 2000 network.

The municipality of the township is committed to amplifying the nature conservation approach and to displaying it in education. Together with local farmers and non-governmental organizations, it has been presenting and promoting the local natural values and treasures in the framework of summer camps and lectures for almost 10 years. We regard FHNPD as an accentuated partner, which keeps count of several protected species of Community interest in our area.

Our participation in this proposal fits organically into our concept, which not only preserves the plant and animal fauna of our township, but also ensures its further enrichment. Our primary goal is to reach out to the local population and to involve them more and more actively during and after the implementation of the project. Our primary target is the local farmer community who are currently using it, and as well as the young people who are going to inherit the land.

Our many years of experience in program organization, implementation and aftercare, as well as our excellent relationship with local non-governmental organizations, guarantee the fulfillment of the commitments made in the program. Not only do we know the needs of farmers and the local population, but we also form and shape it with our programs and organized presentations.
