“Generation after generation the crofter raises his chant, contemptuous of the powers that lay claim to his limbs and seek to rule his fate to his dying day.” (Halldór Laxness, 1933)
The project aims to redefine the relationship between society and nature. The result is an educational institution with the objective to equip agricultural students with the tools
necessary for an agrarian life in harmony with the natural environment.
The diverse landscape of the area is a key factor, where horticulture, aquaculture, and ecosystems will be at the forefront.
The program concludes with a semester where students eventually graduate into the farming community with a well-formed strategy in their sustainable practices for a positive coexistence with the forces of nature.
