Restauro: Visible Award
About the project
Forests are essential for life on earth. Today 90% of the deforestation in the Amazon is due to monoculture and livestock farming. The way food is produced is devastating the planet. RESTAURO (‘restoring’) addresses the environmental crisis by considering what is on our plates. It operates as a RESTAURANT, in collaboration with local chefs and farmers, the menu of which prioritises the diversity of the plant kingdom from agroforestry, an ancient indigenous form of growing food in alliance with the forest. Nowadays it is practiced by the Landless Movement in Brazil, collaborators in RESTAURO.
