Local business

Source of budget funding, source of income for local residents, creating a prosperous social group responsible for the community (creating a “community skeleton”), setting precedent for successful agricultural business on small land plots, setting up conditions for the development of agricultural business in communities located within 35-50 km from Radowell.

Areas of business:

Growing of berries with a target of 100% for export sales. The initial plantings on an area of up to 50 hectares provide for growing based on conventional technology with the subsequent transition to the organic berries growing.

The development of berries business involves organization of production related to berries picking, chilling, freezing, making jams, packaging and storing.

Growing cucumbers/tomatoes in greenhouses located on plots of land attached to houses is focused on selling cultivated vegetables exclusively in domestic market. This business can be run by both large families and lonely people. The production module will provide processing (chilling) and packaging of vegetables (preparation for transportation).

Apiculture provides for the creation of 5-7 entrepreneurs (with 100-300 hives each) who will focus on producing organic beekeeping products for selling on the foreign markets.

A business plan is planned to be developed for each direction.

Business should be owned by families living in the community.

Land. All land shares must be registered to persons who are entitled to share. There should not be a single plot of land with indefinite status left in the community.

It is planned to establish a cooperative that will hold assets and provide services to the business sector, community and its residents, including: sale, picking, packaging, learning to use new technologies, planting material, methodological (technical, agronomic, laboratory) support, soil management (crop rotation), learning and technology control, education, etc.
