SoEngage is funded through Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnership in the field of Vocational Education and Training for 2yrs from 01 October 2018 to 30 September 2020.
Project Partners: Germany, Ireland, Poland, Romaina, Spain and UK
The objective of the SoEngage project is 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 care or educational support services.
The farm remains a working farm where people who need support benefit from participating in farm activities in a non-clinical environment.
The partners will share their expertise and resources to create a comprehensive set of online self-learning resources. The online resources will provide farmers and growers with training to develop their competence to engage in social farming. The training will include case studies taken from real social farm practices across the partner regions.
