Year of Family Farming: School Organic Gardens - Portugal

On the occasion of the International Year of Family Farming (2014),  the schools in Lagos, Portugal, received support for a teacher CPD programme on "Organic Agriculture in Schools".  As a result of the teacher training programme, some schools have now organic gardens.
This picture presents some of the activities at "Escola Básica das Naus", with teachers, students and families conceiving and producing the organic garden as a pillar of the school's sustainable management.
