HOCCA
CCA Campus Organic Garden
Occupying the garden 
 

HOCCA (Organic Garden of the Center for Agricultural Sciences) emerged on the campus of the Center for Agricultural Sciences of the Federal University of Santa Catarina - UFSC. HOCCA’s purpose was to provide students with the opportunity to learn agroecological principles and techniques. The vacant space on campus was occupied by students without authorization from university management. Later, the initiative's leaders managed to make the “occupation” sanctioned by university as an official extension project in 2015.

The idea was to claim this space

from the CCA Campus that was idle "

Project Closure         

HOCCA ended its activities as an extension project in October 2019. The lack of organizational and philosophical compatibility were the causes pointed out as causes for the closure of activities. Even so, the project contributed to an evolution of the pedagogical practice of urban agriculture at the university. Below the figures provide a dimension of this contribution.
