National park “Prespa” joined an eco-program, in order to start producing beans in a most harmless for the environment way. The national park is an international reserve for protecting different species.


The program “For a Europe with more nature” is sponsored by the World Wide Fund for Nature project, according to which producers use limited quantities of pesticides and fertilizers. The farmers are keeping a diary of their work and are informing the competent coordinators for their every step done during the production. The program pays great attention to the water from the lake, which should be used for watering the eco-cultivation.


The goal of the project is to lower the effect towards nature by the intensive growing of agricultural crops mostly by Greek farmers, who are producing beans. The idea is that through the program, the farmers will be taught new ways to grow crops, which are ecological and are connected to the special needs of nature in this region.


In order to distribute the production, they will need to emphasize on the quality because the food is produced in a way, which is consistent with the environment. This way the brand “Prespa Park Products” will become known on the market. This will also help farmers become more competitive and known on the market.


Right now, agriculture in National Park Prespa is its main activity developed by the citizens, who get their main income from it. The program for biologically growing beans started in 2007 by the Association for preserving Prespa with the cooperation of the competent authorities from the region.
