11-14 October 2023 - AgroBUS: Trainer the Trainers - Porto, Portugal

From 11 to 14 October 2023, the training course for adult educators of the AgroBUS project took place in Porto, Portugal. The event focused on “How to create a start-up business in urban agriculture”.

The aim was to raise awareness among the 10 trainers about local community development, community engagement, and the local environmental impact of an Urban Agriculture business.

It was so great to share experiences and knowledge about urban agriculture, interculturality, community development, and communication!


We also had the opportunity to chat with Diógenes Dinis, a professional connected to agriculture for many years and who has built his own business with his family. Dinis shared with us the difficulties of running an agricultural business in Portugal, the challenges, his daily life, and also what motivates him to work every day in this field.

In the next two years, we will contribute our knowledge, ideas, and efforts to create a friendlier society and a better future for many adults from our area, knowing that investing in the community is the best investment in the future of any society.
