Peter Schön | AUSTRIA

Peter is just starting a small farm in eastern Austria. There he and his partner aim to pursue semi-subsistence farming, selling fruits and vegetables on the local market. He found that for someone who does not come from a farming family, this is quite difficult. As a farmer Peter wants to find ways to generate sufficient income from a small plot, to make a good living. Additionally he is interested in possibilities to create access to land for people wanting to become farmers. Personally Peter has been a food waste activist for many years. He considers it a symptom of malfunction of our food system, that so much ends up in the bin.
