The practice of cultivating plant resources has been growing in cities, as a means of redemption of values by the residents. In this way, the present work was concerned with proposing that innovation was present in the process of training community health agents. Therefore, this is a methodological study aimed at recommending the elaboration of a protocol aimed at creating an organic garden with the basic health unit in which the training course will be developed, with the joint action of the unit’s management, and with location yet to be defined. The course already mentioned will have theoretical and practical classes, in which concepts and factors that affect the process will be worked on. Classes will be divided into 3 (three) modules, the first of which will discuss organic matter and the use of waste; the second on the composting process, including concepts, conditions and recommendations; and the third about the use of the compound and its extract. It is expected that through training, focused on the problem of organic waste management, it will be possible to realize that garbage from non-renewable resources can be used as organic compounds in planting vegetables through the composting method, thus providing community agents obtain support so that, based on the acquired knowledge, they understand the importance of creating this space that will serve as a study, which can still act to awaken people’s awareness regarding the impacts caused by their actions on health and the environment.
