What is it about?

A group of students from diverse fields of study aims to develop a model to strengthen village communities in poor rural areas by means of income-generating activities. The first steps were taken in Bódvalenke. Local cooking and eating traditions were collected in 'Lenkeland's Machinery' and presented in Budapest; simple equipment is available to residents for drying and desiccating fruits, mushrooms, vegetables and herbs. These products are sold in towns and cities under the fair-trade brand PluszOK. The second part of the project is based on village handicrafts.
