A CHARITY association has been granted a municipal vegetable patch in Velez-Malaga to use for social purposes.
Councillor for General Services of Velez-Malaga Council, Francisco Natera, presided over the event to hand over a vegetable patch to local association ADUSMAX (Association for Mental Health Users of the Axarquia), represented by Head, Soledad Rodriguez.
The plot has a surface of 50 square metres which will serve to launch a social project for the members of the association.
“The main goals of the project are: to train users on agriculture techniques, provide specific training, activate citizens’ participation and contribute to social interaction and integration of the group members,” said Mr Natera.
For two years, the 40 members of ADUSMAX will be able to enjoy the benefits of gardening, free of cost.
