People with disabilities represent 15% of the world's population and 7.4% of the Japanese population. We conduct this research in order to contribute to the realization of the SDGs by creating a symbiotic society where their physical and social segregation is removed.

The purpose of this study is to design the site space and communication contents mediated by agriculture while supporting the medical and welfare perspectives, and to clarify various effects including economic aspects. The characteristic feature of this research is to clarify the form of community based on scientific evidence through the approach of a medical corporation and an environmental design specialist to the agricultural activities of the disabled, which have been mainly conducted by agricultural corporations and welfare facilities.
