Development of horticultural, market-gardening and dacha non-commercial associations of citizens

Detailed description of the Good Practice

The sphere of non-commercial land use (horticulture and market gardening) involves about one million residents of the Leningrad region or 316 thousand families, which accounts for 55 percent of the population of the Leningrad region.

The citizens involved in horticulture, market-gardening and small-scale cultivation ensure solution of a number of socially significant problems at their own expense and with their own labour in the interests of the family:
• Solution of the food problem for low-income citizens;
• Solution of the problem of health-improving recreation;
• Partial solution of the housing problem of large families;
• Solution of the problem of employment of pensioners and citizens not engaged in agricultural and industrial spheres of economy of the region.
Horticulture and market-gardening outside the sphere of the competitive market of agricultural production can support the family in the conditions of continuously growing prices of food, housing maintenance, services of healthcare, education, energy, transport, communication, goods and services.

At the same time the natural resources of the Leningrad region bear a large man-made burden from the seasonal stay of over two million people, which cause grave problems of compliance with the ecological and sanitary requirements, preservation of forest and water resources of the Leningrad region.

Natural wealth, responsible consumption and lifestyle.
