Partido Popular Mayor Rafel Torres yesterday signed an agreement with civic organisations Probens, Incaviva and the Francesc de Borja Moll Centre for Adult Education for using the plots at the Serral de Ses Monges premises, formerly used by a religious order.
The groups who are benefiting from the cession of the allotments are required to respect the norms governing the use of the land.
The town council will have to finance the water resources which the organisations will need for their activity, largely of an eco-friendly agricultural nature. The Mayor said that it is one way of putting what he described as a human factor into the town-based allotments of Inca and will give the growers a sense of being useful to the community. Recently, the town council in Inca ceded 20 plots of 50 square metres to people over 65 to enable them to have a space to grow their own fruit and vegetables. Catholic charity Caritas is also considering signing up to the urban allotment scheme.
