Saturday August 11, 2012:

The Venezuelan Urban Agriculture Program started in 2009 with about 200
productive units. This year it reached 22,000 units, with an expected
production
of more than 20,000 tons of organic food.   Government support and a
network of grassroots organizations are the backbone of this project.

Martha Bolivar is the architect of this initiative. She is the president
of CIARA (Foundation for the Training and Innovation to Support the
Agrarian Revolution),  a division of the Venezuelan Ministry of Land and
Agriculture which promotes innovative and environmentally sustainable
initiatives to support the growth of the agricultural sector (rural,
peri-urban and urban) and aquaculture.
