Vertical Farming, Horizontal Solidarity

“Vertical Farming, Horizontal Solidarity” is a project for social inclusion funded by the BPI Foundation “la Caixa” Solidarity 2022 Award, Race for Good and a group of private donors, which includes the installation of a vertical farming at the Torres Novas’s Prision, where around 40 inmates, together with the prison guards, are responsible for its management.

Its objective is to improve the diet of the inmate population, as well as support 100 families in need identified by CRIT and Cruz Vermelha Torres Novas, through the distribution of food baskets with vegetables grown and harvested by the inmates
