The project began in 2013, in the city of Três Lagoas, Mato Grosso do Sul, spreading popular uses and customs that preserve factors of the region’s cultural identity.

Implementation of beds of herbs in the shape of a human body was proposed so that kids and their families could enjoy the benefits of the garden for a healthier and preventive diet. The project also includes activities to raise social and environmental awareness and allow kids to play a leading role, providing young people with training on the environment and sustainability.

Partners
