Village Feast – Ecological food choices and international youth work

 

Village Feast is a project of 4H associations in the Turku region and their international partner, the Austrian LAG Südburgenland Plussa, which seeks and distributes ecological food solutions.

The aim of the project is to strengthen the participants’ knowledge of the traditions, opportunities and producers of organic food culture in their home country, specifically in their own surrounding area. The project also aims to support the equality of participants and to encourage them to participate in international and multicultural activities. Participants in the project will be provided with information and means on how an individual can concretely, with his or her own ecological actions, influence his or her carbon footprint. The project is implemented in the form of events focusing on food traditions, organic food and natural products. In addition, the project includes international youth exchanges and international camps.

Through Village Feast, it is possible to learn new ecological recipes and strengthen sustainable values ​​of life. Although it is a large international project, it offers new perspectives on everyday life at the individual level. The project brings nature closer and teaches young people to utilize nature ecologically. Identifying edible fungi, exploiting wild herbs, and international communication are skills that benefit not only the individual but the entire globe.

The main measures of the project are workshops, courses and other events related to food traditions, organic food and natural products, as well as visits to ecological sites, international youth exchanges and international camps. At the end of the project, a village feast will be organized.

The Village Feast project is implemented in co-operation with the 4H associations in Lieto, Masku-Rusko-Vahto, Naantali, Paimio-Sauvo and Turku.
