Vacant Lots in Brazil Are Being Turned Into Thriving Community Gardens
Brazilian NGO Cidades sem Fome has transformed vacant lots in São Paulo into more than 80 urban and school gardens, contributing to food security and community development. Inspired by a project in Germany, these urban gardens offer an opportunity for residents to grow their own food, promote healthy eating habits, and connect with nature. With the potential to feed the city's population with locally grown produce, initiatives like these not only enhance food security but also reduce the environmental impact of long-distance food transportation.
