NEW ORCHARDS

Frutta Urbana wants to design and implement new orchards that will be productive gardens, botanical collections of old varieties, as well as places to learn, experiment, gather and share. Unlike vegetable gardens, orchards require less maintenance, are better suited to biological systems and produce generous amounts of fruit. The fruit orchards will be created in abandoned areas, schools, social centres, new squares, in the centre and in the outskirts. The new orchards will be designed after landscape and architectural assessments and realized through workshops open to everyone. Throughout this process, Frutta Urbana will be collaborating with local authorities, schools, and other associations depending on the needs.
