With more than 110 participating institutions from all over the country and more than 120 teachers, the "100 orchards" project began, a theoretical-practical training project in the design and development of educational agroecological orchards throughout the country promoted by the Fundación Club de Rome Argentina Chapter in coordination with the Carrefour International Foundation.
"100 orchards" aims to accompany and strengthen the technical capacities of referents from more schools and social institutions throughout the country, in relation to food security and sovereignty.
More than 110 institutions participate in it, including primary and secondary schools and gardens, picnic areas, homes and other community spaces from different locations in Neuquen, Rio Negro, Salta, Buenos Aires, the Ciudad Autónoma of Buenos Aires, Santiago del Estero, Jujuy, Entre Rios, Corrientes, Cordoba, Tucuman and Santa Fe.
