This is a neighbourly project in the heart of Lavapiés, similar to El Campo de Cebada (check the El Campo de Cebada article). It is situated behind a big wall on a quiet street of Dr. Fourquet and it is hard to notice it just passing by.
They organize workshops, activities for children, concerts and much more. But they have the best card up their sleeve: an urban vegetable garden, which is beautiful and noticeably very well taken care of. Everything looks so natural and simple that you almost forget you are in the center of a big capital. Of course they have constructed their own premises and furniture. The area is carefully divided into nooks; some on floor planking other covered by a cool roof throwing a shade on wooden benches and sofas.
Their two main activities, in which you can participate, are gardening on Wednesday and Sunday mornings and bicycle workshops on Sundays. For simply enjoying their beautiful and colourful garden, surrounded by tall apartment buildings and walls covered by street art graffiti, you can visit them on Sundays and sporadic ‘sunny days’ as they are inviting. Precisely which those sunny days are in Madrid, where days are sunlit almost the entire year, I’ll leave for you to decide.
