Provide Vegetable Gardens for Families in Brazil



Irrigated vegetable gardens are provided for Brazilian rural families. As a result they have food, work and better habitat and environmental conditions.We provide tree nurseries and green houses.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Rainforest was exploited with methods that led to severe soil, water and landscape degradation, causing rural poverty and migration to cities. This project was created with the purpose of donating Irrigated Organic Vegetable Gardens, Tree Nurseries and Greenhouses for poor farmers and Land Reform settlers and people wanting and needing to improve and ameliorate their life standards and quality. We seek to establish them as organic farmers and agroforestry producers and home entrepreneurs.

How will this project solve this problem?

An irrigated vegetable garden area is established to produce food and goods for the market. A central water reservoir is also created which makes it possible to grow produce. Trees are planted to provide food, shade and protect soil from the sun.

Potential Long Term Impact

The donation of the gardens makes it possible to create a "Small Family Oasis" where families or associated workers can live all year round, planting their food, producing goods for the market, with jobs and occupation.
