Working together, a group of women in Brazil formed Arredor de Casa
, an organization that focuses on challenges faced by women in rural areas. Born out of the hardships of land fragmentation and soil depletion in rural Brazil, Arredor de Casa sought solutions. Members have cultivated their own backyard spaces to produce food and study medicinal plants, using these resources to increase social standing for women in Brazil. Since its inception, members have had female farmer exchanges of knowledge and tools, using and spreading the insights of more than 1300 women. Arredor de Casa has banded together rural female farmers, forging both solutions and bonds.
