Where do universal human rights begin?

In small places near the house, so close and so small that they can not be seen on any map of the world. But they are the world of every single person; the neighborhood where you live, the school attended, the factory, farm or office where you work. These are the places where every man, woman or child seek equal justice, equal opportunities, equal dignity without discrimination. If these rights have no meaning there, they have little meaning elsewhere. In the absence of organized actions by citizens to support those close to their homes, we will look in vain for progress in the wider world. Therefore we believe that the destiny of human rights is in the hands of all citizens in all our communities “.
(Eleanor Roosevelt – In Your Hands, March 27, 1958).

Social Agriculture includes the set of practices carried out on a territory by agricultural enterprises, social cooperatives and other organizations that combine the use of agricultural resources with social activities.

The activities of the Social Agriculture are aimed at:
• generate inclusive benefits, promote therapeutic, rehabilitative and care pathways;
• supporting the social and labor inclusion of disadvantaged groups of people at risk of marginalization;
• promote social cohesion, substantially and continuously.

The general aim of the project is to create a neutral place for meeting and confronting people (disabled or otherwise) who can relate to aggregative, expressive and cultural activities.

Another aim of the project is the creation of a greater awareness of the real capabilities and limitations of each and their possible conversion into elements of strength for the design of autonomy paths.
The path does not arise only as the classic professional training course that transmits technical skills, but is aimed at promoting and encouraging social inclusion by acting not so much on technical skills, but by developing the resources necessary to create an attitude aimed at empowering own actions and new ways of relating to others.

In practice, we try to develop those skills that allow us to renew or start positive relationships with others, once we return to move in society. For these particular characteristics, this type of project performs a preparatory function, giving support to the person in recognizing, constructing and undertaking “a new path” to follow.

Through an active participation, which calls the participant out of the perspective of a passive use of content, we will try to bring out the real needs of the participants, to allow to reflect and develop an adequate “social skills”, ie the ability to work and relate to others to achieve specific social-related goals.

This objective will be pursued through the proposition of activities aimed at starting paths of self-realization of the subject, through the construction of a constructive relationship with himself and with others, through mutual exchange, dialogue and interaction, in order to enhance the diversity of each participant.

• To favor the meeting with the people, the resources and the activities of the territory;
• Maintaining social bonds and combating isolation and loneliness;
• Valuing individual life experience;
• Pursue the general interest of the community in human promotion and social integration of citizens;
• To promote active reminiscence, with a dual purpose: as a form of historical memory of the community and as a form of therapy for the elderly;
• To break down the prejudices that often lead people to the margins of society by stimulating reflections capable of transforming themselves into good practices and actions of active citizenship;
• Stimulate the spirit of initiative by allowing you to feel an active part of the project;
• Educating for mutual understanding and respect for diversity;

To achieve the objectives set, it is considered that the daily activity should be analyzed at various stages: reception, meeting, scheduled activities, listening and checking the mood of the operator and the results achieved (progress made, any difficulties encountered, etc

The proposed activities are aimed at improving personal autonomy and acquiring new skills. The activities are aimed at promoting those skills that allow each individual to learn new professional skills, increasing their wealth of knowledge. These are activities in which you can experiment with the use of different materials and techniques or get to the production of precise products.

The privileged areas of interest for the activities may be as an example:

environment and nature:
gardening and green maintenance;
garden: from sowing to harvest;
extensive productions: from sowing to harvesting;
painting and graphic arts;
creations with natural and recycled materials.
The timing will be agreed with the actors involved and, at the end of each path, the achievement of the objectives will be evaluated.

Some examples:
Horticulture laboratory: in the vegetable garden, users learn to work the land, to sow and transplant, but above all they learn respect for the environment and the importance of engaging in a constant way to then concretely see the final result of their work.
Creative use and reuse workshop: activities aimed at expressing one’s taste and creativity. With the help of the manager, users test their manual and expressive abilities using different materials and experimenting with different techniques.
Cooking workshop on the farm: cooking on the farm is an activity that contains multiple experiences, as it involves all the sensory channels such as cognitive aspects (memorization, attention, dosage …) and socio-affective aspects (collaboration). In this activity, users have the opportunity to experience the gratification that can be felt by seeing a concrete product realized.
