Added value of social farming for agricultural production
Social farming combines social work with agricultural production and pursues social, therapeutic and educational goals. In Germany social farming enterprises specializing in certain clientele predominate, often as part of sheltered workshops for disabled people and with the status of non-profit organizations. The integration of people from outside the agricultural sector into "normal" farms is much more common in other European countries. The challenge is also to ensure that the "inclusion" of people with special needs in agriculture, as required by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Disabled, becomes a synergy rather than a "handicap" for the farm. Therefore, within the framework of the "Interdisciplinary Partnership on Added Value through Social Farming in Hesse", an operational group of producers and scientists, has started to collaborate in order to investigate and support the potential of social farming for the development of agricultural enterprises in Hesse.
Results and the Final report will be found here, as soon as the project is completed.
