Trees and plants for Campo towns and villages

PICT0010 (Press release) The ultimate objective of the Plan Provincial de Arbolado Urbano 2009 (Provincial Plan for Urban Plantings 2009), published on April 15 in the Official Bulletin of the Province, is to ensure that the municipalities of the province carry out their commitment to their urban environment.>PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ITEMS SUCH AS THIS MAY BE SUBJECT TO SUBSCRIPTION IN THE FUTURE but you can make a donation NOW, too!

For this purpose, the Plan proposes a series of vegetation species, in a catalogue published by Diputación de Cádiz, aimed at carrying such activities as: creation and restoration of plantings in the streets; creation and improvement of parks, squares and gardens; floral decoration of the municipality; creation and restoration of green areas on the outskirts of towns and villages and in degraded areas; improvement of urban landscapes aimed at educational purposes.

The Mancomunidad de Municipios del Campo de Gibraltar, through the auspices of its Centre for Training, Employment and Social Matters, has requested a grant through which to take part in the Plan.

(Prospero note: Maybe we should begin to think of all those ever unfinished, rubble-filled eyesores throughout the Campo that could do with some ‘renovation’, ‘restoration’ and ‘decoration’, of which each one of us probably has a long list…)

Too right! Enough of those boring new fountains too – has no-one any imagination. The one at the bottom of town is so much more attractive.

Just before last Christmas my brother and I joined many Spannish families planting shrubs and trees on land below the caravan site. They have now been burried under cement, dug up by a JCB or neatly strimmed. So much for restoration!
