KISHANTOS NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!

The Kishantos Organic Demonstration Farm on 452 hectares was destroyed by a government decision in Hungary! Even the organic plants on more than 400 hectares were destroyed on 12th April 2014 in a violent action ordered and backed by the Hungarian government. It have happened against the Constitution of Hungary and against the low.

Kishantos leaders turned to the court and struggle for the survival. As the whole Centre was runned on the income of the farm - Kishantos is in a very hard situation. Until the final court decision we need to survive. Luckily we could keep the Centre itself with the education Centre, farm centre, park and 1 hectares of new garden under conversion to organic. So we are able to continue our activities for sustainably. We are trying to get income from the education, from the organic garden and from the utilization of the buildings. But it takes time - therefore we need help to survive this very hard period. We ask all those who agree with us that a centre for sustainabiltiy with a scientifically designed organic demonstration farm should not be destroyed - it has to be built up again!

Let's show the power of the movement for sustainability all over the world - let's help the survival of Kishantos!

The History and Activities of the Kishantos Rural Development Centre

The Kishantosi Vidékfejlesztési Központ /Kishantos Rural Development Centre/ is located in the heart of Hungary in the Mezőföld area, which is ideally suited for agriculture, 3 kms from Hantos village.

The objective of the work carried out here is to teach and demonstrate sustainable rural development and organic farming. Known and acknowledged both in Hungary and abroad the Kishantos Rural Development Centre is in many ways an extraordinary institution. It is extraordinary because it is based on a truly civilian initiative growing from below and rooted in the local community. Since the time the idea was born (1991) it was through continuous, consistent hard work and enduring battles that we managed to create the rural development centre. The initiative grew from our belief that the intelligentsia are responsible for the community they belong to, therefore we dreamt of a centre which serves the rise of the local society, and helps people with up-to-date knowledge.
