The project “From the Sky to the Table”, a community project promoting food self-sustainability through vertical farming, has been developed in the Aquilino Ribeiro Machado Horticultural Park, between the neighbourhoods of Murtas and São João de Brito e Pote D’Água, in Alvalade.

The project seeks to make the most of the pedagogical potential of the Community Greenhouse. By bringing consumers closer to the production process, it stimulates involvement in agricultural practices and the urgent questions of food sovereignty, thus leading to community self-organisation and environmental and economic sustainability.

This visit to the Alvalade Community Greenhouse shows off a meeting place for the local community, which encourages a practical, conscious and reflexive way of living, based on active participation in building a shared city setting.
