Jainaba Jobarteh is a community garden organizer based in Madrid. Her co-operative garden has grown to produce many kinds of fruits and vegetables in all seasons for its members. Jobarteh has long been committed to creating community plans for her friends and neighbors so they can all get the nourishment and means to lead a healthy lifestyle they need.

Jainaba Jobarteh started with a small plot of land in an empty lot. She started planting garden crops like tomatoes at first and offered them to local bodegas and other markets in her neighborhood. After a while it became clear that she was onto something because her neighbors and others in the community started to flock around her gardens. Soon, she had a co-op on her hands. “It turned from a one-woman show into a community very fast,” she says.

Jainaba Jobarteh now runs a community garden co-op that has hundreds of members.
