HUERTO EN LA TERRAZA AUTUMN 2021

HUERTO EN LA TERRAZA

Fotografía: Sue Ponce.

The Huerto en la terraza of the CA2M has been holding workshops for almost a decade. During this time, we have lived through an active process involving the participation of many different people, all of whom have made it a meeting spot based on teamwork and shared knowledge.

Since its beginnings, the Huerto en la terraza has been a space whose aim is to go beyond just being a school of organic agriculture; it had to form a community. It has far exceeded this expectation, accumulating myriad experiences, learning, collective stories and community links around it, all of which make us proud to have such a space as this in Móstoles, one that is already a benchmark beyond our municipality’s borders.

Today, the community of the Huerto en la terraza of the CA2M faces the challenge of opening up to new people without losing the drive to carry out research and experimentation to motivate those who are already a part of it. For this reason, during this course we will provide an opportunity to those interested in starting out in the field of organic agriculture and permaculture, at its most basic levels, without forgetting the needs and learning pace of those who have already participated in the past and who require other lines of experimentation that combine vegetable gardens, art and our immense capacity to create with our own hands. This year, the workshops will change their timeslot to Thursday mornings. We hope that this change will bring more people to our vegetable garden so we can continue to share and learn together.

Free admission with limited capacity.

In collaboration with Break the Cycle Transition Institute
