Orchard meadows, called “Baumgart”, “Pangert” or “Anger” in South Tyrol, were once omnipresent in the region. Today, however, they are rarely found. They are important elements of our cultural landscape, which not only provide us with fruit of often rare and autochthonous varieties, but also hay, leaf litter, and firewood. They are a beautiful element of our landscape, and many tasty products and traditions are tied to them. Baumgart are also an important habitat for countless animal and plant species. Reason enough to dedicate an evening to our extensive orchards: The Baumgart Initiative invites you to an event on Friday, 5 November at 5 pm in the main building of Eurac Research in Bolzano/Bozen. Representatives of Roter Hahn, Bioland Südtirol, Eurac Research, Amt für Natur, Heimatpflegeverband and Sortengarten Südtirol will highlight the value of the orchards from different points of view and underline the added value of this habitat. The event ends with a tasting of original fruit varieties and an aperitif.
