Look at our living classroom!

Join teacher Maria Edna Rodrigues and her 19 students in their preschool vegetable garden in Petrolina, Brazil. The children water the vegetables with watering cans made of empty utensils donated by their parents. They watch their vegetables grow every day and are counting down to the time for harvesting and eating the crops they planted with their own tiny hands. One future farmer named Kauê has claimed the garden as his own and is very committed to caring for the plants, especially his favorite papaya tree. Just another example of how INMED and the Monsanto Fund are helping vulnerable children establish healthy habits from the start! Learn more: paracriancas.org.br.
