The project Vseedling nursery for agroforestry production in Aldeia Brejãowhich runs Hanaiti Yomomo Association (AHY), aims to include indigenous peoples in the community development process, ensuring a sustainable alternative in food security, the use of new social technologies, sustainable use of land and plant species in the Cerrado, as well as adding value and generating income through agricultural and extractivist means.
One of the main components of this project is to train community members in agroecological transition and agroforestry systems, as well as in the production of fruits of plant species of the Cerrado. Therefore, on November 30 and December 1, 2018 AHY invites interested parties to participate in the Cerrad Native Seedling Production Capacity Building Workshopo, which will be taught by Dr. Zefa Valdivina Pereira (UNICAMP).
