CALVIÀ TOWN HALL SETS UP, BOTH TURNS TO USE THE URBAN KITCHEN GARDENS OF THE MUNICIPALITY AND MEASURES TO GUARANTEE HYGIENIC AND SOCIAL CONDITIONS
In the municipality there are two public urban kitchen garden areas divided into more than 40 plots
People who have rented a plot in Calvià's public urban kitchen gardens will be able to go by complying with the shifts and schedules that the Council, through the Environment and Ecological Transition area, has established so that hygienic and social conditions are guaranteed when residents visit the plots.
Thus, once the conditions that limited working on self-consumption family gardens have been partially lifted, there will be a limited capacity so that the tenants will be able to go, from Monday, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on alternate days: those who have a parcel with an even plot number will be able to go to their urban kitchen gardens on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while those with odd plot numbers will be able to go on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Deputy Mayor for Environment and Ecological Transition, Rafel Sedano, asks users to observe all the hygienic and social measures to be able to work on these areas in complete safety, reminding residents that only one person per plot can go during the essential time for the minimum maintenance of the urban kitchen garden.
Tenants may not share hand tools and must always keep a safe distance from other people of at least 2 metres. In addition, it is recommended that they wear gloves, and use a mask and hydrogels, or soap and water, so that they can clean their hands regularly, especially after touching the lock and the entrance gate to the garden.
Calvià has two public urban kitchen garden areas in the municipality: one in Son Bugadelles and the other, recently opened, in Son Ferrer, with more than 40 plots between the two.
