Let us present you newly constructed greenhouse of Vanik: second grantee of ON-FARM CLIMATE RESILIENCE ACADEMY: VISEGRAD 4 ARMENIA, supported by International Visegrad Fund.

Second demonstration workshops under the project took place in Tavush region in Aghavnavank village, where Vanik has small underground a greenhouse, possible to build thanks to the micro-grant from Visegrad project.

His greenhouse' purpose is to produce, transplant and cultivate herbs and seedlings, which will be grown in biodegradable pots. His further plans are very ambitious: he is going to sell them directly to herbal tea producers and companies producing natural cosmetics. He also wants to install a simple drip irrigation system in the greenhouse - in order to implement effective water resources management, the irrigation of herbs will be carried out mainly through a drip irrigation system; as he will build a small rainwater harvesting plant, to be used for irrigation.

That and many more hints on cultivating the land in a sustainable manner and methods of natural farming Vanik has shared during the workshop.

Thank you Vanik and wish you all the very best for the future!

Do you remember Gevorg, one of the grantees under the project ON-FARM CLIMATE RESILIENCE ACADEMY: VISEGRAD 4 ARMENIA, supported by International Visegrad Fund?

During Demonstration Workshop, this young and creative leader has shown in practice how he combined functioning of his greenhouse - where he plants roses - with remotely controlled IoT system created by himself, which calculates the need of water usage for the greenhouse. Thanks to micro-grant from the project, he was able to buy and install solar panel, generating 2300KW electricity per year, which is enough for irrigation need of his greenhouse.

That was very meaningful experience - thank you Gevorg and wish you all the best!
