Revolution
History

An outbreak of Leptospirosis caused residents of the Chico Mendes Community to reduce the accumulation of food scraps, which were not being collected by the municipal Capital Improvement Company (COMCAP) and were attracting rats. The solution was composting. Community leaders went from door to door to mobilize the community to separate their organics which addressed the problem and created healthy soil for urban gardens in the process. 

 

The acknowledgment

In 2008, the Baldinhos Revolution, with the assistance of CEPAGRO , wins the social technology innovation award from Banco do Brasil. In July 2012, the Baldinhos Revolution participated in Rio + 20 as a model of social technology.    

Composting

In the composting work of the Baldinhos Revolution, not all foods go to the compost, like red meats. The temperature of the composting windrows is controlled, and the windrow is turned every time the organic material is added.

The Revolution Today

Bairro Chico Mendes, still suffers from the lack of garbage collection, but transformed into an NGO, the Baldinhos Revolution continues its activities. A Revolution was necessary for a new look of the public power. Currently, the city of Florianópolis works with organic waste management.

“The Community was empowered

Urban Garden on the Margins

Professor Clarilton Ribas (UFSC) talks about the actions of urban gardens in the poorest communities in large cities. The Bucket Revolution is in the Chico Mendes community, which is economically disadvantaged compared to other neighbourhoods in Florianópolis, and the outbreak of Leptospirosis that resulted in the creation of the initiative can be attributed to a lack of basic services that should be provided by the State.

"Urban agriculture is a love declaration for the city"

Ribas - University Professor
