Welcome to our „Social farms in Visegrad countries” project!
From October 2016 to September 2017 we are going to explore social farm initiatives and collect best practices in the Visegrad countries. In Western and Northern Europe the emergence and spreading of social farms started decades ago, in Eastern Europe this process has started in recent years. We presume that due to our common history before the period of the regime change we face similar difficulties and challenges in the area of social farming initiatives. The collection of V4 good-practices would assist in the successful development and operation of social farms in the Visegrad countries.
Social farming - also called care farming - is a farming practice that uses agricultural resources to provide social/educational/health care services and/or employment opportunities for vulnerable groups of people.
