The Green Belt Project Rosario (PCVR, Proyecto Cinturón Verde Rosario) seeks the conversion of productive peri-urban areas in Rosario to agroecological systems. The general aim is to achieve production of healthy food (meaning without contaminants) and improvement of the socio-economic conditions of producers, their families and farm workers. It also aims to contribute to the health of consumers and the environment, as well as revitalise short food supply chains that target differentiated markets.
