Sarah and Courtney are two senior students from Princeton University who are working in areas of global health and urban development. They are based in Rio for the 2012 summer and are working in Rocinha and Niteroi to establish gardening projects.
This is their blog – Cultivating Restorative Spaces – and a link to an article that talks of GMF.
GMF is donating some organic seeds to their project. We wish them them much success!
