At this stage, 25 households from Navur, Itsaqar, Verin Karmiraghbyur and Berd communities participated in the “Wild Berry cultivation and production” practical trainings and each household received 45 of wild berry bushes plus necessary agricultural tools for effective cultivation and future production of the berries.

It is also planned to fence already selected lands of the households and pass through the drip irrigation system, and for the first time, organize a pilot Eco production of wild berries(jams with low sugar and tea assortment from dried berries).

The project is implemented by the Berd Women’s Resource Center Foundation jointly with the partner organization of  “Green Lane” and Business Support Center.
