Banc de terres, the Land bank
A Land Bank consists of a database of fields of which the owners are willing to make an assignment, sharecropping or rental contract. People interested in expanding the amount of land they work or starting a new agricultural activity, can consult this registry and contact the owners to see and reach an agreement. The managing entity is in charge of managing contacts and facilitating agreements.
LAND BANK MAP
Abandoned land is an economic hole for its owners. They are a reservoir for pests such as rodents and diseases such as Xylella fastidiosa. And they are a cause of erosion and danger of forest fires. Having land registered in the Land Bank does not exempt you from the responsibility of good agricultural practices as an owner, until you do a deal with an interested party.
The launch of the Land Bank increases job and business opportunities related to the agricultural sector. If you also take into account that working the land involves managing the territory, setting the population and fighting climate change, then it can be considered a fantastic initiative.
To register or demand land, it is very simple, go the page in castellano and click on the button for LAND REGISTRATION or LAND DEMAND and fill in the form. We will contact you and hold informative meetings (in valenciano) with all interested parties on the types of contracts.
If you want to collaborate with the agrarian revitalization of Xaló, you can sign up at I WANT TO COLLABORATE WITH THE LAND BANK. We have created a WhatsApp group to support all scheduled activities, call coordination meetings so that you can participate and propose initiatives related to education and the environment, healthy eating and agro-ecological production.
