From the 30th of August to 6th of September, the coordinator group from Germany visited Romania for the 2nd time within the project. During the trip, another 11 wood-pastures, this time from Cluj-Napoca surroundings, were visited and interviews with the people from the regions took place.
In contrast to the first expedition, this time, the wood-pastures systems were presented in a different prospective, as in the Cluj-Napoca region the real concept of wood-pastures is disappearing more and more caused by urbanization and industrialised agricultural practices. As a proof, a simple feature is that we don´t see old trees that often anymore as in the Sighisoara region. Still, there were created some unique systems which equilibrates the relation animals-pastures with trees as could be seen in the Deusu and Sansimion villages for example.
Some of the wood-pastures films and the interviews will be available on the webpage as well as on the Youtube channel soon.
