Summary

This project will contribute to the promotion and technical support of agroecological gardens in rural and urban schools in Argentina through training and advice spaces that promote adequate nutrition for children.

Challenge

In vulnerable communities in Argentina, many of the children only receive one meal a day: this is possible thanks to the food provided by schools. A current demand in education in recent years is to incorporate a school garden in educational centers. It is of great importance to improve the nutrition of children, with the incorporation of fruits and vegetables in their daily diet. In addition, it has been shown that the garden favors the cognitive and emotional development of students.

Solution

This project offers training to 50 schools for teachers, children and their families on the principles of agroecology, so that everyone is able to manage and monitor their gardens, and thus improve their daily diet. School gardens as part of formal education are a valid tool, because it is a practical and direct way in which students can see the results of their decisions and daily actions. In addition, they allow the development of skills and social bonds that favor personal growth.

Long-Term Impact

-In the long term, this project can benefit more than 200 rural and urban schools in Argentina, and even be replicated in other countries where ACDI works, such as Bolivia and Paraguay. -In addition, by holding workshops and classes using the school garden as an educational resource, the participation of students and their families is achieved. Therefore, families can then replicate what they have learned and install their own family gardens and, in this way, reach more than 1,500 families.
