Allotment in Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon Allotments



There are a range of food-growing sites in Lisbon. Some like those in Parque Urbano do Vale de Chelas are used by people to grow food for themselves and for recreation. At unofficial sites like the one south of Bela Vista metro station, people grow food to sell illegally to supplement their income.


This unconventional use of land reflects the harsh economic conditions faced by local people.
