When we first started brainstorming about the way the George Avenue Foundation could support the development of Care Farming in Switzerland, the idea was born the find a physical farm and develop that as a true co-creation of Swiss (care) farming on the one side, and the models that have been developed in the Netherlands and other countries on the other. Over the years, many Swiss farmers and care professionals have visited the Netherlands and exchanged ideas of how to contribute to care farms in Switzerland, but the dream of developing a demonstration farm remained relevant. In 2022 the foundation was able to purchase a farm and is currently looking for a Swiss family that will make the dream of a demonstration farm for care farming a reality.
