Since the first of October, I am doing the control and monitoring of the Badalona City Council Allotment Gardens.

Badalona has 80 plots for urban gardening. According to City Council rules, these plots are for retired citizens. They can grow vegetables under organic agriculture. The production is for themselves, the users can not sell it. The plots have 25 square meters each.

I have been speaking with some users and they said me that the surface it was enough for one couple. Perhaps in summer they give some tomatoes to their relatives.

These allotment gardens are located in two farm houses or manor houses (Torre Codina/ Can Cabanyes). The ancient orchards are used for urban agriculture.
