HARD-UP pensioners and the jobless are being given free organic allotments to help them grow their own vegetables.

Twenty plots have been earmarked next to the Guadiar river in Casares, to be handed out to over 65s and the unemployed as soon as the land has been prepared.


Recipients will be encouraged to use traditional methods – without chemicals – to grow their produce.

An excellent idea that could be reproduced at very little cost in many villages in Andalucia.
