Trebinje – Within the workshop on possibilities for the cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants, seeds of hemp, ever flower, thyme and heather were distributed free of charge to interested MAP farmers from the Herzegovina region. The workshop was held at the Business Incubator of Trebinje, while the workshop moderator, Ms Slobodanka Comic, presented to the interested participants the opportunities and perspectives for the cultivation and sale of some sorts of medicinal and aromatic plants.
During the practical part of the training, an experimental plot of land was seeded with the 4 mentioned species, while another one is to be seeded within the premises of the “Ljekobilje” company, which is partner in the organization of this workshop. Thereby, interested farmers will be able to monitor the process of cultivation at the experimental plots of land and to receive additional information from experts in this area at any time.
