Itinerary 1: A WALK AMONG THE CROPS IN LA CORRALIZA

 

We will start this walk along the organic farming olive grove and will learn how to recognize the different varieties of olive trees, appreciating crop-related flora and fauna. We will be amazed at the  bushy vegetation, of scrubland-pasture that borders the olive grove, because this is an ideal habitat to develop and defend our appreciated partridge and other living beings. The olive grove maintains the ability to welcome migratory birds, thrushes, greenfinches, goldfinches that travel every year from the Northern countries in search for a refuge.

 

In the old pen of La Corraliza, we can see illustrative panels with information of the relief of the area, flora and fauna, footprints, tracks and signs of wildlife,  crop rotations and all works done during the farming season in the olive grove as well as in annual crops.

 

We will have the opportunity to taste different varieties of organic oil such as the Arbequina, the Empeltre, the Picual and the Coupage, too.

 

We will continue our walk learning the sense of rotations, alternatives and associations (or polycultures) of farming, with different nutritive needs, with different radicular systems, viable in  such a compromised environment. Cereals and leguminous are annual crops in La Corraliza that are the basis of our food and part of our itinerary.
