Orchard of Flavours — Pomar dos Sabores

The Orchard of Flavours project is a botanical garden dedicated to fruit trees and other edible plants of warm climates.
It was started with 3 main goals in mind:
— Cultivating more diverse edible species on our local landscape of southern Europe
— Adjusting to climate change by researching water-saving techniques and drought-resistant fruit trees
— Sharing knowledge freely, nurturing a community of conscious growers.

Growing a diverse array of many hard-to-find edible species from around the world (over 300 species), it is an experimental orchard and an open source educational oasis inspired and based on agroecological practices and using innovative technologies.

Fruit tree growing enthusiasts from around the world visit the Orchard throughout the year, going on guided tours and attending in-depth tree growing workshops.

In addition to Learn articles which are regularly written and shared on the website, based on the ongoing progress of the project, detailed databases of all plants growing at the edible botanical garden are also kept open and available online for any interested folks to do research on.
