The aim of this project is to map out the available herbal markets along the Slovak-Hungarian border. By personally interviewing over 200 leading representatives in the region, we can assess the type of herbs they produce, sell. Additionally, we are presented with the most frequently occurring herbs in the region, as well as their main effects and characteristics. In addition to creating an online interactive interface, we will create an information centre in Komarno and Nagykapos, where we will provide further advice for those individuals interested in such projects.
Another aim of the project is to increase employment in the disadvantaged border regions and to provide these individuals with additional income. It is also our objective to strengthen the relationship between herbal entrepreneurs and to establish a network of contacts for them. This improves higher-value production as it increases the number of disadvantages individuals working in this industry.
