General

Associao de Desenvolvimento Comunitrio de Bataypor (ADEPOR), $87,500 over two years. ADEPOR will work with farmers who were resettled as a result of Brazil's program of land reform, to plant agro- ecological community gardens in idle or degraded areas and organize a cooperative, resulting in a more reliable food supply for approximately 500 rural families, for schools and for markets in the municipality of Bataypor, Mato Grosso do Sul. The grantee plans to connect the new cooperative to wholesalers in the region, school lunch programs and government agencies that distribute food to the poor.
