The project


Favela Orgânica is a pioneer initiative originated in the communities of Babilonia-Chapeu Mangueira, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was created in September 2011, with only R$ 140,00, as the result of Regina Tchelly’s sensitive look and determination. From a holistic approach that encompasses concepts such as conscious consumption, alternative gastronomy, home composting and vegetable gardens in small spaces, the project has already led workshops and lectures to several states in Brazil, as well as countries such as France, Italy and Uruguay.

Congratulations for your initiative, Regina! Brazil needs more people willing to change our world like you. Even God, our creator, is happy about your activities, cause you don’t think about yourself, you think about others. Don’t think small, think big. I am happy I met you, not in person, but for your actions.

I dream of having a project similar to yours. Reeducate our compulsive behavior of throwing things in the bin. How much couldn’t you do with what you discard? I confess that I don’t have enough strengh. I would like to know your project, of course! Big hug.

I’ve seen a report about your project Favela Orgânica while watching a Brazilian channel in Toronto, Canada. I am looking for the recipes you shared. Even though I’m living in a country with better economic conditions, I’ve learned that I can use vegetable peels and stalks when I cook meals for my family. Congrats!
