Kilpatrick, Sue
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v21 n5 p446-61 Sep-Oct 2002
Interviews with 14 Australian farmers involved in farm business learning activities described how social capital is built through support networks. Four stages of development were identified: (1) individual self-confidence, interpersonal, and leadership skills; (2) getting acquainted; (3) credibility of group members; and (4) commitment. A model for simultaneous building and use of social capital was created. (Contains 19 references.) (SK)
