Summary of the project
As Nossas Quintas aims to be a reference of the Terceira Island’s primary sector in the promotion, production and consumption of horticultural products in organic production mode, fostering the principle of sustainability while enhancing the importance of natural resources, providing decent work conditions for young people in situations of greater social vulnerability. It intends to raise awareness among children from kindergartens (3 to 6 years) of the municipality of Angra do Heroísmo to the environment and environmental sustainability concerns; promote practical activities in contact with the horticultural production of As Nossas Quintas through the development of a Pedagogical Farm with activities for groups and / or families; to instil good eating habits including vegetables; create and develop domestic and / or community gardens in more disadvantaged places to spread healthy eating habits, environmental sustainability concerns and domestic management knowledge.
As Nossas Quintas is already a social reference in Terceira Island and with the expansion of the actions foreseen in this project, it will allow to reach different target groups with the objective of instilling the principles of environmental sustainability and the consumption of organic products in lower age groups and encouraging the use of the natural resources of an Island with huge potential in this area.
