Curraleira’s Community Garden

This workshop was part of the Community Artistic Workshops of the Iminente Festival in 2022, sponsored by the EDP Foundation, with the implementation of horizontal vegetable gardens and a composting station in the Curraleira neighbourhood. The aim was to awaken the interest of children and young people in biodiversity, sustainable food and consumption, as well as to stimulate responsible habits, environmental conservation and the social, physical and mental well-being of the community.

Through articulation with the network of local partners, the necessary tools were provided to train Associação Geração com Futuro and the workshop participants, guaranteeing their autonomy in managing this system. A potential model to be applied in other territories with similar challenges, promoting active citizenship and a commitment to cultural change towards sustainable development.
