Kräuterprojekt "Alchemilla" (Alchemilla Herb Project) - development of a marketing platform for regional herbal products and a themed herbal trail and exhibition
Alchemilla is the name chosen by the women from six communities who are working to develop herbal products from the Grosses Walsertal Biosphere Reserve (e.g. soap, herb cushions, ointments, etc.), which were initially launched in September 2006. In the framework of the project, a marketing platform is to be developed for these products, including publication of a joint brochure. A themed herbal trail and a herb exhibition plus brochure are planned for full presentation of the subject. Grosses Walsertal is located in the middle of Vorarlberg. With an area of 192 km² and 3500 inhabitants it is very sparsely populated. There is hardly any industry, but the valley offers an intact cultural landscape, meadows with a great variety of wild flowers and an almost untouched natural landscape. In 1998 the six communities in the valley applied as a region to UNESCO for certification as a Biosphere Reserve, which they received in November 2000. Numerous projects have since been implemented in the fields of agriculture, the trades, tourism and environmental education in keeping with the commitment deriving from the UNESCO award to be a model region for sustainability in life and business.

Natura 2000 Ludescherberg
Dry calcareous grassland, mountain hay meadows, low-elevation peatlands and petrifying springs with tufa formation are the characteristic features of the Natura 2000 area in Ludescherberg. A lack of farm management and intensification are potential threats to these ecological assets, which can only be protected through sustainable management. Management deficits are identified in co-operation with the farmers and a management concept drawn up. The project is accompanied by a full public relations programme.
