Community Gardens in Brazil

In the upcoming international seminar, Ph.D. student Lorena Nascimento will talk about her work with community gardens in Brazil last year. 

Lorena's research interest is on environmental justice. In the past two years, she has worked as a garden instructor of Arleta SUN school and touched some community gardens projects during her internship at Green Lents. She is also a certified garden coordinator through Growing Gardens.  With extensive experience working on community gardens in both Portland and Brazil, she will share her insights on the varied challenges comparing community gardens between the US and Brazil.
