Small Family Farms Project

A project from Förderverein STÄDTE OHNE HUNGER Deutschland
in Agudo, Brazil

In 2009 the Small Family Farms Project has been set up in Rio Grande do Sul, to train farmers in multiple cropping as an alternative to monoculture and help them starting new businesses in organic farming.

About this project

The success of the Community Gardens Project in São Paulo has enabled the project to be set up in the small rural city of Agudo in Rio Grande do Sul, the southern-most Brazilian state. This small city which since the 1980's has relied only on tobacco production is now facing difficulties with monoculture.

→ Currently three farmers are being trained in multiple cropping.

→ The project is already using two greenhouses which have been developed with the CITIES WITHOUT HUNGER technology.
