Community Gardens – Article

Abstract: Community and educational urban gardens are increasingly present in cities. They are a socio-cultural manifestation of preservation of cultivation traditions and an agricultural practice that contributes to sustainable development, but which must follow the principle of a biocentric posture. The present work proposes to promote through the urban garden the concept of community gardens as a space for reflection and interaction on sustainable development and environmental education. In view of this, we proposed to analyze the urban garden of the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança. This analysis aimed to understand the dynamics of this project developed through a survey and to understand if the participants proposed to adopt an organic agriculture. We also tried to understand if urban gardens can function as laboratories of environmental education and be understood as tools for community development, meeting the 2030 agenda of sustainable development goals.
