As such, Le Début des Haricots actively supports the creation of community gardens and the formation of groups and networks that buy produce from local farmers in bulk. Aiming to change consumers’ behaviour long-term, Le Début des Haricots campaigns for better practices in agriculture and provides educational children’s programmes about the environment. Finally, it encourages the creation of gardens in order to get people active and to improve the neighbourhood’s look by creating opportunities and spaces for recreational and therapeutic activities.
