Introduction into the topic:
This topic introduces the concept of organic farm visits as an educational tool for disadvantaged learners. It also examines the requirments of different disadvantaged young people (e.g. various mental or physical handicaps) and what has to be taken into consideration when participants with handicaps visit an educational farm. Finally, the unit presents best practice examples and shows how organic farm experiences and their associated learning opportunities can be used to support learners and their educational needs.
