For all young people who are now involved in agriculture, this new direction means a challenge of how to run a farm nowadays, in the way that creates interpersonal relationships and strengthens mutual tolerance. The young people can actively integrate into the society; they can support disadvantaged groups of citizens and continue in doing their jobs in their field in which they are interested. This project could basically reduce rate of unemployment in the field; it can inspire and guide participants to create their own business plan and encourage them to find their own way to conduct business.The topic is also beneficial in terms of healthy lifestyle and high-quality life of an individual. Not every type of business in agriculture is included in official school plans and therefore it is very good to organize project meeting related to this topic in order to open it for young people. The topic of rural support / rural community fully corresponds to the focus of all partners.We cooperate with professional gardeners, beekeepers and farmers as well as with pedagogues of experiential education.Regarding documentation of the camp, we would like to prepare an exhibition of photographs or panels describing activities and scope of the camp or model of rural market. We are trying to bring the topic of rural developement to the shape of a live issue, even in these times when we lack models suitable to follow.
