In Brazil, there is a frequent debate about the unequal distribution of income and food among individuals, along with persistent poverty and the limited growth of the country's GDP.


With the purpose of cultivating and disseminating a sustainable mentality, the Amazonas Institute, by encouraging the practice of urban agriculture and the creation and management of vegetable gardens in peripheral areas of cities, is promoting the generation of employment and income through the production of organic food.


In addition to contributing to reducing food insecurity that affects people in situations of social vulnerability, regions that were previously abandoned or degraded are transformed into productive spaces, where cultivated products, known for their quality and affordable prices, have a positive impact on both farmers partners and beneficiaries of the Institute's communities and social programs.


Our goals include:


  • Establishment of 20 urban gardens and 10 gardens in schools.

  • Conducting free courses and workshops to train the low-income population.

  • Renovation of several urban areas.

  • Distribution of healthy foods to low-income families.
