Before & After: Mrs. Eunice’s Cooperative Home & Daycare

Brazilian front garden before and after makeover

Made over by the Brazilian television show, Caldeirão, the Eunice family not only has a new garden, but a repaired car, entrepreneurial assistance for the sewing shop that they run out of the top floor of their home and a new business website (Costura Unida)! (Wow for Brazilian TV taking such a holistic approach for a makeover).  And to top it all off, recycled materials were used throughout.

This was not small challenge — Dona Eunice, and her husband have been taking care of the neediest in their community for many years.   In addition to taking custody of 27 abandoned children (so this is the family home of 29 people!)  in their poverty stricken neighborhood, they also employ mothers with a sewing cooperative and provide day care facilities for nearby families.  For all their good deeds they were rewarded with a sustainable TV makeover.

Rosenbaum design studio directed all the work.  To see more Visit Rosenbaum.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
