Urban gardens in Montecarmelo

La Huerta de Montecarmelo has opened in Madrid, an initiative of the Carmen Pardo-Valcarce Foundation, in collaboration with Caja Madrid, which comes to town in order to take advantage of any loophole in the urban landscape to create green space. The new trend of creating 'urban gardens' in European and American capitals has thousands of followers. In London, they have waiting lists of up to 5 to 10 years to rent an urban garden.

La Huerta de Montecarmelo has 6,000 m2. This initiative allows all fans to the garden, orchard and/or the food, enjoy a garden in the city of Madrid without a substantial investment of time, without a big investment and keeping the pace of modern life.

Working with this project contributes to the work that Carmen Pardo-Valcarce Foundation and Caja Madrid developed for employment and social integration of people with intellectual disabilities, formed as gardeners who will act as "Personal Keepers" by ensuring maintenance of orchards. The garden has all the basic care and constant maintenance of a team of people with intellectual disabilities.

Ultimately, the project aims to organize fun and educational activities aimed at people of all ages, to encourage participation in agriculture-friendly environment through the creation and maintenance of the 'urban garden'. Creating both a cultural and entertainment alternative that conveys the idea of sustainable development.


  • Renting a garden of 20 m2 is of at least one year to ensure compliance with a production cycle.
  • The registration fee is 150 euros, which includes assembly and plants, 65 euros per month + 20 euros for the care of the "Personal Keeper"
  • Hours: Monday to Saturday from 10.00 to 19.00, and Sundays from 10.00 to 15.00.
  • Calle Monasterio de las Huelgas, 15, Madrid. www.lahuertademontecarmelo.com and www.pardo-valcarce.com. Telf 917 355 790

Nice!! I used to live in Oregon and they had a really good thing going as far as community gardens. Just in the area that I lived alone, we had four or five organic community gardens, where the use of chemical pesticides was prohibited. It's good to see that this is getting to be a big thing, little by little we can take back commercial farming!

It?s nice to see that people are getting conscious about the green spaces in the cities. Because we all need a place free of noise and other worries to develop our inner natural self. I hope that this continue in other countries and cities
