WITH the implementation of municipal ‘urban orchards’, the City Council of Javea is offering residents the opportunity to harvest their own vegetables, whilst at the same time converting empty land and improving the environmental quality of the municipality.
Eleven of the orchard plots located next to the school Trenc d’Alba have been allocated recently, with 24 left vacant. Of the eleven allocated, eight were allocated to individuals, two to the students of the neighbouring school and one to the users of the TAPIS occupational workshop.
Applications will soon be open for those interested in taking on one of the 24 vacant plots. To apply, you must be registered in Javea and be unemployed or retired.
Councillor Doris Courcelles has pointed out that in this new stage of development and further to abuses found in the previous stage of development by contractors, individual water consumption counters have been installed and the consumption of water will be charged to individuals.
If you are interested in applying for a plot, please contact The Department of Environment of the City of City Council of Javea for more information.
