The BLTC in Hartberg provides a staging and sales outlet for firewood, enabling local customers to have the peace of mind of knowing that they will have a readily available supply of suitable quality wood for their heating needs.
While at the Hartberg BLTC, Christian Metschina gave us a short presentation on the development of the facility and described how it fits within the overall cooperative.
At the time of our visit, the Hartberg facility was the newest BLTC, although another one was launched this past August.
The same year that the BLTC
hired Leon, they had also brought in a new trainer from Lausanne.
