This network mapping below depicts the ecosystem of huertos urbanos and other groups in Madrid, including the initiatives of which they are a project and groups with which have collaborated or are otherwise associated. Entities in the network include the huertos; neighborhood associations; social and cultural centers; and collectives of experts like artists, architects, and engineers. Through this mapping, we can see the numerous ways these groups are all intertwined with each other and work together.
The majority of huertos do not operate independently, but rather are projects of a larger initiative (see Campo de Cebada or Espacio Vecinal Arganzuela/La Sanchita, for example), collaborate with other groups to design and build a space for the community (see Paisaje Tetuan or Esta es una Plaza, for example), or are undertaken by a neighborhood association (see Huerto Urbano Comunitario de Vicalvaro or Huerto de la Ventilla, for example). Furthermore, trends emerge through the netowkr mapping that are indicative of historic and present-day grassroots work in Madrid. For more network analysis and detail about select projects, see below the network map.
To use the network map, click entities or search an entity by name to see the which other groups it is connected to and how it is connected (re: connection type) and details including what type of group it is, where it's located, links to their websites/social media pages, or their other programming. Larger entities represent Featured Sites; see below for more information about these Featured Sites.
