Economy

Commercialisation

INLAND promotes the production and commercialization of agri-food and artistic products made in the by the agents, and their respective places, with whom we have collaborated. These forms of direct marketing, local markets, etc. are forms of participatory economy and self-employment.

INLAND currently commercializes:

–  Olive oil and derivatives from the ancient olive groves of the Sierra de la Tramuntana Mallorquina where the School of Craftsmanship is located

“La Unión” wine, made especially for campo adentro as a result of a collaborative project that brings together small artisan wineries in La Rioja Alavesa

Cheese from the School of Shepherds

These products are marketed occasionally combined with original or serial works by different artists.

Micro-credits

INLAND has set up a loan scheme where small amounts of capital are lent at low interest to peer initiatives to start or develop their own projects. Once returned, these amounts are available for other applicants. Currently a credit of near 15.000 € has been granted to develop local production, elaboration and direct marketing of products from ancient olive groves in the mountains of Mallorca.

Access to Land

INLAND has a database of land offered by local partners for aligned art and rural initiatives

INLAND acts as  intermediary between local partners and applicants and  elaborates the conditions with the person or entity interested in finding a use for these abandoned farms, villages and plots of land. It organizes and evaluates interested applicants by providing advice and training in the preparation and implementation stages of the project.

INLAND offers as well the possibility of marketing the produce of these newly installed rural cells.

The agreements for access vary from place to place, and can take the form of land leases at no cost, low rent or funding schemes once a solid and feasible proposal is put together and approved jointly with the local partner.
