Project “Bio-garden of old Varieties and populations of vegetables

March-October 2006. The organic garden was established at a surface of 1 hectare, with the assistance of Prof. dr Branke Lazić together with experts of the Scientific Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops. The aim of the garden was not only to produce organic vegetables, but also to preserve old tomato, onion and green paper varieties. The farm was often visited by bikers, while their products were in great demand at the “My Salas“ Market. The Institute provided old seeds at no cost.

The project became a unique organic garden project in Serbia, joining together the non-governmental sector, a private farm owner, the Scientific Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops, and independent experts.
