History of origin and milestones
» A group of dedicated Brodowin citizens defines the aim of conserving Brodowin’s unique nature through organic farming. The author and citizen Raimar Gilsenbach is the first to coin the term “Ökodorf Brodowin” – Brodowin eco-village. The Brodowin farmer’s co-operative decides to shift to organic agriculture and to follow the guidelines of the Demeter association in using bio-dynamic farming methods in future.
» Due to the political changes and peaceful revolution of 1989 new corporate laws need to be established. The former agricultural cooperatives – for animal husbandry “8 May Brodowin” and for plant husbandry “Lüdersdorf” – merge to form the agricultural cooperative “Ökodorf Brodowin e.G”.
» On 27 June 1991 the new enterprise “Ökodorf Brodowin Landwirtschafts GmbH & Co. KG” is formed which will take over the future management of the farm. With high capital expenditure it completes the transition to bio-dynamic agriculture and develops new fields of work. The farm land includes areas in the districts of Brodowin, Serwest and Buchholz.
