Recovering the traditional way of cultivating a vegetable garden in Mijas, planting our own fruit trees and vegetables to feed ourselves in the healthiest way or knowing the dates for sowing and harvesting. You can learn all this in the workshop ‘How to make a Mijas vegetable garden’. This is the objective of the programme set up by Soroptimist International, in collaboration with the Department for Foreigners of the Mijas Town Hall and the Association ‘La Alegría de la Huerta’.

The course includes a total of five workshops on the traditional Mijas vegetable garden. The workshops will take place on February 11th, March 11th, April 15th, May 13th and June 10th, from 11am to 1pm in Valtocado, at the headquarters of the ‘Alegria de La Huerta’ Association, and are priced at 5 euros per workshop and 50 euros for registration. According to the councillor for Foreigners, Arancha López (Cs), “together with Soroptimist International and ‘La Alegría de la Huerta’,  we are presenting a second edition of this programme. The workshops will be held on Saturday mornings, and will give us the opportunity to learn how to create our own vegetable garden here in Mijas, without needing a lot of land, depending on the weather and the time of year”.

Registration Registration can be made by email ( or at the Foreigner’s Department and the price includes the materials, the planting calendar, a donation for the association and a drink and tapa at the end of the day. Around 20 places are available. According to Antonia Nuñez, “on arrival, they have to prepare the land, sow it and, in short, have fun with the garden and make the most of the place, a natural and fresh environment without any kind of pollution. All kinds of vegetables will be planted, each with its own process and time. Nature cannot be rushed and this has nothing to do with what you buy in the supermarket. This is organic and traditional agriculture.
