In the frame of the European exchange programme Leonardo da Vinci and the Climate Needs Farmers Project, the association VERN has been participating in a project co-ordinated by a Polish partner organization that runs from 2012 to 2014. Further initiatives from Hungary, France, Austria and Turkey are also taking place. The contributions of the partners focus on public relations and information regarding climate adaption, organic agriculture, rural development and the use of plant genetic resources.
Meetings take place twice a year to harmonize and coordinate the initiatives of the partners. After meetings in Poland in January 2013 and Austria in May 2013, a workshop of several days’ duration will take place in September this year.
VERN is a private non-profit association with function as a regional network of gardeners, farmers and local garden sites in Brandenburg / Germany. The association was founded in 1996 by support of the Brandenburg State Agency of Large Protected Areas (LAGS), the German Genebank Gatersleben (IPK) and the InformationCenter for Genetic Resources (IPK) Bonn (now BLE-IBV). Today more than 500 members are involved with VERN.
