Two local urban gardens in Barcelona city centre. Well worth a visit -

Pla d'Energia Participatiu- A participative community group active across barcelona centering on the Sant Martí, PobleNou and La Verneda neighbourhoods. It means "Participative energy plan" where energy is seen with a wide definition from neighbour participation to actual energy generation. Many focus groups with lots of activities, a large urban garden space waiting to happen, and a quarterly meeting.

La Mandanga - A shared workspace/event space started by local architects and artists working on participative projects in raval and beyond, and has been our daily ShareFest HQ, work area and printing house.

Can Battlo - A huge, neighbourhood run social/industrial space in Sants, Barcelona, with a public library, carpentry workshops, a working bar and events area and much more. Many architects and groups have participated in rebuilding these spaces from recycled materials.

Som 300 - A protest/awareness raising group and various people who identify as ex-inhabitants of La Nave, a squatted industrial space that existed for many years in the PobleNou neighbourhood, and evicted in July 2013. Many of these people are now active in other organisations. Many articles have been written about "the ship" - la Nave, also known as mount zion, which once ran many recycling spaces and regular shipments to and from west africa.

Cooperativa Calafrica Moving - A cooperative formed by some ex members of "La Nave" which provides legal backing and documents for recycling, arts and other activities.
