INMED’s Health in Action programs in Brazil and South Africa

INMED’s Health in Action programs in Brazil and South Africa are featured examples of the power of school gardens in a Huffington Post article by Dr. Rafael Pérez-Escamilla, Director of Global Health at the Yale School of Public Health. School gardens, nutrition and healthy lifestyles are the focus of a variety of public-private partnerships driven by Mondelēz International Foundation (MIF). INMED Partnerships for Children has been a long-time community partner of MIF in Brazil and South Africa, where our programs are making significant impacts on the health of children, their families and their communities.

The co-op plans to grow cucumber, rocket lettuce (specifically requested by the B&B in the next town), spinach, tomato,es and beans.
