The 12th meeting with local inhabitants

The 12th meeting of traditional agricultural producers and businessmen along the Krka River was held on Saturday, October 26, 2019 in the conference hall of the Visitor Centre in Laškovica.

A lecture on organic farming and its implementation and benefits was delivered by Sonja Karoglan Todorović, Director of the AGRO EKO firm/Ecological Institute ECOLOGICA. The growth and development of organic farming is a particularly important step for a better future as part of sustainable land management. Organic production is generally a comprehensive system of agricultural management and food production that integrates the best environmental protection practices, high levels of biological diversity, conservation of natural resources, along with the application of high standards for animal welfare. For this reason, organic production plays a dual role, on the one hand supplying the market according to consumers' demands for organic products, and on the other, contributing to environmental protection, animal welfare, and rural development.

After the discussion on organic farming, Sonja Karoglan Todorovic also addressed the issue of life in Natura 2000 areas, the rights and obligations of residents, and the challenges that such measures bring. Almost 50% of the area of Šibenik-Knin County was designated as a Natura 2000 area. The benefits and opportunities for development in Natura 2000 conditions are extensive and were explained at the meeting.

The Krka National Park organizes meetings of traditional agricultural producers and entrepreneurs along the Krka River with the aim of education and support through interactive workshops and lectures. Preparation of developmental programs in local communities along the boundaries the Krka National Park is part of a long-term strategy, which through the development of projects in the coming years will strengthen the local economy and rural development within Natura 2000 areas and create preconditions for long-term development, protection, and education.
