Crescer Saudável Program

In Petrolina, Brazil, summer break is over, Carnaval has ended and the students of the Irmã Dourado preschool are ready to garden! Our Para Criancas project coordinators worked tirelessly while the children were away to prepare Crescer Saudável program materials for 117 preschools, tend the school gardens under the discerning eye of our Agriculture Specialist Mário Lúcio and train cafeteria workers in preparing healthy, kid-friendly meals. Now it’s time to plant green, red and yellow pepper plants, kale and cherry tomato seedlings to grow tasty additions to the school meals. Learn more about INMED’s Crescer Saudável (Growing Healthy) program with the Monsanto Fund at www.paracriancas.org.br and https://inmed.org.
