In many European countries, agriculture can be characterised by a momentous change in agrostructure and its demographic environment. Farmers respond to these changes in multiple ways. One
of them is to diversify agricultural production. Against this background, social farming recently is
attracting greater interest as one possible diversification strategy. Likewise, in the field of social
work, the potential of agriculture as a “setting” for employment, therapy or rehabilitation is receiving
a more and more positive reception.
