The Conference was organised by Care- t- Farms projekt (http://care-t-farms.eu/index.php/en/) Erasmus + programme, willing to encourage the use of farms as places promoting positive mental and physical health and wellbeing
Social farming, also known as care faming, is based on the principal of using farms as providers of social and health support services. While social farming is suitable for all ages, it mainly targets disabled and elderly persons as well as people suffering from diseases. Use of farming activities is associated with a range of benefits, including increased self-esteem and feeling of inclusion, as well as improved health and wellbeing.
