Church offers its land to new farmers

The head of the Church of Greece, Archbishop Ieronymos, has offered land to prospective farmers as a way of combating the crisis.

In his Christmas message, Ieronymos did not say if the Church would charge a fee for the use of the land. “Whoever wants to work on Greek land, contributing to the country’s food security and the development of modern, exportable agricultural and livestock products, should know that what little land the Church has left is available to them,” he said.

A scheme providing subsidized public farmland already exists.
