Training on issues related to biodiversity in agricultural areas is an essential program designed to educate and empower farmers on the importance of ecological diversity in agricultural practices. The training will highlight the best solutions that support biodiversity and aid in the regeneration of soil health, emphasizing the critical role these elements play in sustainable agriculture.

In February, Greenvolt Power organized its first Farmers’ Workshop in Poland, with the aim of bringing ecological awareness and knowledge to farmers and landowners in Opalenica and providing them with more information about financial solutions that support biodiversity in agricultural areas.

The workshops included in this training were specifically tailored to offer farmers comprehensive insights into the role of biodiversity within agricultural ecosystems. Participants learned about the various ecosystem services that biodiversity provides, such as pest control, pollination, and nutrient cycling, which are vital for the health and productivity of agricultural lands.

The session was led by Marek Krysztoforski, an expert with many years of experience in agricultural consultancy, and Karol Podyma from the Łąki Kwietne Foundation shared their knowledge, focusing on important aspects related to biodiversity and soil regeneration.

Key issues covered during the training included:

Biodiversity in agricultural landscapes and its ecosystem benefits:
Experts discussed why biodiversity is important for agricultural landscapes and what specific ecosystem services it provides. Practical information was provided on how farmers can actively support and increase diversity on their farms.

Financial support mechanisms for farmers:
Various ecological schemes and multi-annual programs, including flower strips, field plantings and agroforestry systems, were discussed in detail. Available amounts of financial support that can be used by farmers to improve biodiversity and regenerate soil on their farms are also highlighted.

Examples of good practices:
All the participants had the opportunity to learn about specific examples of farmers who effectively support biodiversity and soil regeneration. This hands-on approach helped participants see what concrete benefits could come from implementing such practices on their own farms.

An important goal of this training is to illustrate how maintaining and enhancing biodiversity can be both environmentally beneficial and financially advantageous for farmers. By adopting practices that support biodiversity, farmers can contribute to the overall health of the ecosystem while also potentially improving crop yields, reducing the need for chemical inputs, and enhancing the resilience of their farming systems against pests, diseases, and changing climatic conditions.


This training was an opportunity for farmers to not only learn about the importance of biodiversity in agriculture but also to become champions of sustainable farming practices. By the end of the program, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to make positive changes in their farming methods, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural sector
