Social Agriculture – Federal Institute for Less Favoured and Mountainous Areas (BABF), April 22, 2013


Within the concept of multi-functional agriculture, social agriculture increases more and more in significance. In this volume, the results of a semi-structured, explorative study between Austria, South Tyrol, and Trentino on the situation and perspectives of social agriculture are presented, performed in cooperation with the BABF, the Federal Institute of Agricultural Economics, the European Academy in Bolzano, and the Istituto Agrario di San Michelle all'Adige at Trentiono.


For the first time, a comprehensive database on the agricultural and silvicultural enterprises involved has been established, and the performance in care, therapy, education and integration has been documented and assessed scientifically and systematically.


Furthermore, this report brings up for discussion a concept of conceptual distinction of social agriculture, furthermore national and international networks are presented, as well as the background and prospects for the future are analyzed.


This event was attended by a delegation of project partners of "social production" (Bio Research Austria / SENEC Association / Lower Austrian Agricultural District Authorities), and held constructive talks on further development of the approach of "socially integrative & know-how intense agriculture".
