SoEngage Project Objectives
To develop training to support farmers engage in Social Farming for economic benefit and sustainability of the farm and the rural community.
Social Farming, also known as Care Farming or Farming for Health offers farmers the opportunity to use their agricultural expertise and resources to provide health (mental and physical), social or educational care support services.
The farm remains a working farm where people who need care support benefit from participating in farm activities in a non-clinical environment.
Training will be delivered to over 300 trainees who will be involved in testing the training from the beginning and throughout the term of the project.
The SoEngage training will be available in the 5 languages of the partners and available as an Open Educational Resource (OER) which can be shared easily across the EU to engage farmers in Social Farming.
As a result of the development of these online and digital platforms the training can be shared easily across Europe to engage farmers in Social Farming. This will benefit farmers through the entrepreneurial opportunity it provides them. It will also benefit the people who use the social farm by providing more professional services and the wider rural community through improved social, economic and cultural sustainability.
