Los Realejos offers plots of land
Allotments are making a comeback in the UK and it seems the trend is the same in Tenerife.
Los Realejos council has opened applications for plots of urban land for residents to cultivate. They will be awarded on a lottery basis.
The aim is not only to allow people to tend the land and grow produce for their own consumption but to improve the local landscape as well and maintain traditional customs.
The Mayor, Manuel Domínguez said they had pledged to carry out this initiative and the first steps are now being taken with completing the paperwork and details of the ordinance.
The first plots will be in the El Burgado area of the town and will be for a term of two years. There will be various rules to abide by, including the non-sale or marketing of the products.
