Position Code: MXSC02
This organisation believe that urban agriculture is a tool for profound social transformation, as well as a strategy to combat climate change, to assert our sovereignty and food security. Urban gardens provide the environmental benefits of a quality urban green area, and create microclimates and habitats for fauna and flora; They allow to close the cycle of nutrients by generating fertile soil, reducing food waste, producing nutritious vegetables and integrating the community.
Build regenerative, educational, training and social bonding models around the cultivation of food, the closing of the nutrient cycle; expanding local food production and access, to promote healthier, more participatory and sustainable communities. We aim to contribute to the development of healthy and resilient cities through the construction of comprehensive and replicable projects for the recovery and transformation of spaces through urban agriculture, sustainable trades and community outreach.
