Toelichting (Engels) On a 60m2 terrace on the ninth floor of a building in Borges de Medeiros Avenue, one of the landmarks of Porto Alegre, members of the “Solidarity Mixed Cooperative of Utopia and Luta Movement” grow over a thousand lettuces and arugula heads per month. Cultivation is done hydroponically. Seedlings are grown in greenhouses to protect the plants from urban pests and dirt. Produce goes to building residents and is sold by “word of mouth”. Recently, the production is being marketed to two restaurants.
