Observer Brazil: The community garden offering seeds of hope to Rio’s favela residents

Although violence, police raids and deadly shootings in the northern favelas of the city threaten programmes like this, our observer Yuri Lopes Cruz sees the garden as a way to reach Rio’s most vulnerable people.
