"The vegetable garden is a living laboratory that stimulates autonomous observation of nature, in which children plant, care for, harvest, and eat the results of their cultivation. Students don't learn how to make a garden, they learn how to face and, above all, reverse the environmental impacts of our society. This is an opportunity to promote education in the service of developing sustainable human communities."

Food production allied with regenerative practices, recovering ecosystems, brings a new vision of sustainability, self-sufficiency, consumption, and conscious use of water. Regeneration through use is only possible with deep ecological knowledge allied to techniques that are capable of synchronizing food production with the successional dynamics of ecosystems.

This is the great challenge in the territory of Mértola and it is through the seed left to the younger generations, and by introducing the concepts of syntropic agriculture, that one can cultivate and harvest with hope. This is the proposal promoted by Hortas Floresta.

The forest gardens take place in 5 schools of the 1st cycle of basic education of the Municipality of Mértola as a Curricular Enrichment Activity (AEC) of the 1st cycle, promoted by the Municipality of Mértola and implemented by Terra Sintrópica Association. They are developed in the Algodor Educational Center, Mina de São Domingos Educational Center, Santana de Cambas Educational Center, S. Miguel do Pinheiro Educational Center and Penilhos Educational Center".
