The paper describes the process of participatory evaluation developed in the project "ORTI E.T.I.C.I.", a social farming project aiming to associate production and social inclusion through the employment of people from vulnerable groups of the population. The participatory evaluation responds to the need of understanding the content and the implications of the project within and outside the network of actors involved and to learn a lesson for planning and coordinating future projects.
