Venda da Vila Velha - rescue the memory of traditional sales and complete the "garden-restaurant" cycle at Espaço Vila Velha: Restaurant and headquarters of Montícola. Promote the circular economy, awareness and community spirit.

The Vila Velha Sale continues and strengthens the Eco-Circular Project: Pedagogical Garden and Social Restaurant, to raise awareness of more conscious consumption. Espaço Vila Velha, in addition to the restaurant and headquarters of the Association, also hosts exhibitions, workshops and lectures. This is where we want to open a grocery store and that's why we're asking for your help!

We intend to establish proximity trade and environmental awareness. We want to sell the products from our garden, transforming them into jams, dehydrated fruits and preserves. We want to promote the returnable tare of used bottles and conscientious purchasing: buy only what you need and in the quantities you need.

Create new links with the community, recover customs, promote the circular economy in the community, make known local/regional production.
On sale at Vila Velha will be available legumes, aromatic herbs, seeds, teas, dried fruits, olive oil, wine, natural cosmetics and essential oils.

Participate in our campaign and help us in Venda da Vila Velha!

About the author

The Montícola Association, founded in 2018 and headquartered in Mértola, is an Association for Sustainable Development and Nature Conservation, with experience in holding events for scientific dissemination, awareness and environmental education, and monitoring focused on two groups: fauna and Flora.

The Montícola Association team comes from all corners of the country. We are lovers of the countryside, the Alentejo, Nature and we want this project to help make the village of Mértola more dynamic, fight depopulation and preserve this land of endless horizons.

We currently manage a vegetable garden, which intends to become an educational vegetable garden, demonstrating good agricultural, environmental and food practices, associating itself with a non-formal education space, Espaço Vila Velha (Restaurant and Tapas).
