Together in Gänserndorf – The natural way


Integrative residential home for severely and slightly challenged persons with therapy animal farm

Close to Vienna is the generously designed integrative residence around the Sonnenfeld organic farm. Young people with slight handicaps learn, practice and live here together with people with severe multiple disabilities. The vegetables for the vegetarian cuisine come from our own production. The new therapy animal farm is an important connecting element. Here, slightly physically challenged students are trained as animal keepers. In addition, animal assisted intervention is offered for people with severe disabilities.
