Access To Land

Huertos Compartidos

Huertos Compartidos (Shared Gardens) is a Spanish initiative that, under the slogan: “You grow food, I give you the land”, puts people who wish to grow a garden but don’t have the land for it in contact with land owners, who are willing to temporarily offer land, in exchange for sharing the harvest. Today we are more than 250 landowners, and the initiative includes 40 hectares.

The website is not only a meeting point for those who like eco-friendly gardens, as well as healthy and natural diets, but also a community.

Huertos Compartidos is promoted by Reforesta, a State NGO for the protection of the environment, declared of public utility, which has been working in Spain for over 20 years.
