Volunteers from Monsanto Fund helped preschoolers plant a school garden in Petrolina, Brazil last week. The activity was part of INMED’s new Crescer Saudável (Growing Healthy) program, facilitated by INMED Brasil. With the Monsanto Fund’s support, INMED is establishing vegetable gardens at 125 preschools, as well as providing nutrition education for children and resources for mothers, teachers, food preparers and local health professionals to encourage long-term, healthy eating habits. The program is projected to benefit more than 58,000 people in Petrolina, including 33,000 children ages six months to five years. For more on this program, follow @INMEDBrasil on Facebook.
