The concept of environmental education in community-based social farming (CSF)

Wioletta Knapik


Social agriculture connects rural and municipal environments thanks to utilising the potential of agricultural farms to provide social services for local communities. This type of agriculture fosters social integration; as a business activity and a method of farm management in rural areas, it contributes to strengthening the relations between rural inhabitants, while at the same time allowing for strengthening of the relationships. The article presents the ideas of the Community-based Social Farming (CSF) project, which is based on cooperation, uses local capital, and implements education focused on such values as: health, history of the region, culture, recreation, healthy food. The primary goal of those actions is to create new social bonds, based on intergenerational and crossenvironmental integration among various entities involved in social agriculture. The project is implemented in the pilot Social Farm "Oaza pod Lasem" ("Oasis by the Forest") in Daleszyn. The CSF combines many forms of operations, as well as involves various entities and engages the local community in its activities. The article more broadly discusses the educational functions performed by the CSF as part of the Educational Social Farm (ESF).
