Abstract

The AA. analyze the revitalization of ecological capital, which provides insights into how effective adjustments in land-use and farming practices can stimulate a reconnection between farming, nature and society. The paper focuses on a case study about endogenous knowledge on the relation between farm activities and the reproduction of the landscape and its flora and fauna in the Friesian Woodlands. They suggest that building adequate, local institutional frameworks that strengthen landscape structures, regional identity and the "brandin"’ of food products will sustain rural development in the area.
