Ecocelta encourages people in Coruña to create their own kitchen garden with 100% organic fertilisers

CommitmentCSR @en

A home-made kitchen garden,  natural wastewater treatment or earthworms producing compost, are some of the surprises in store this week for all those who visit the Mercado de la Cosecha (Harvest Market) Pop-Up Store. A temporary store concept which, until the beginning of October, will serve to bring the Galician countryside to the heart of the city in order to promote its spirit, flavours and philosophy through exemplary initiatives worthy of sharing.

After the opening week’s success at the hand of the traditional cheese-makers  Cortes de Muar, on Tuesday 29 Ecocelta move into the shop to show the range of possibilities that organic agriculture has to offer.


This SME from Ponteareas (Pontevedra), whose activity revolves around the manufacturing and selling of organic fertilisers and substrate, recycles organic waste through composting and vermicomposting, using earthworms which transform organic waste into compost. All of this, based on the core idea that led to the company being set up in 2002- the search for sustainable management and a balanced nature.

At the store, anyone who wishes to can observe the recycling work carried out by the earthworms, natural wastewater treatment process (in a small lagoon of macrophytic plants), or even learn how to create one’s own vermicomposting system at home with which to fertilise a kitchen garden or urban garden from waste.

Ecocelta opens the second week of the Mercado de la Cosecha shop. During the next three months, the pop up store located in Calle Riego de Agua (number 38) in A Coruña will welcome visitors who can discover for themselves some of the most innovative initiatives from the countryside.

Every week the shop will feature a different protagonist, an exemplary experience, an innovative project, workshops and activities open to the public, tastings of Galician products….. Every week there will be surprises for all, so that by the end of the summer both Coruña citizens and visitors will have fallen under the spell of the possibilities that our countryside offers.

Ecocelta’s aim is to create environmental awareness and, hence, proposes a number of workshops and informative talks. Among them is the workshop on “Vermicompostaje casero” (“Home-made vermicomposting”) and the talk “Naturaleza en equilibrio” (“Nature in harmony”). These activities will be held in groups of 6 (minimum) and 12 people (maximum). There will be a list available in the Mercado de la Cosecha shop  to enroll on the activities. They will be held form 8-10pm form Tuesday to Thursday, and on Saturday (11am-1pm) until the groups are filled.

With the opening of its pop up store, the Mercado de la Cosecha (Harvest Market) takes a further step in its commitment to supporting the development and sustainability of the Galician countryside.

The Mercado de la Cosecha is a social commitment initiative shared by Hijos de Rivera, RandGadis. Its main objective is to promote the socioeconomic development of Galicia and the sustainability of its rural areas. In order to do so, it carries out a number of different initiatives to spread and promote these ideas, such as the Parladoiros, of which a second edition has already been held, or the just-opened pop-up store which we intend to take to other cities in the short-term.
