Biodiversity at cova fullola
Our main priority is to protect the rich abundance of species in this thriving ecosystem of forest and olive grove. We think it's really important to know the names of the plants and animals that live around us.
for if you do not know the name of a plant or animal, how will you know or care when it is gone?
When we moved here we were so excited to find many plants we had never seen or even heard of before, and began identifying and trying to remember the names of all our new friends. For the purpose of recording and sharing what we find, Here is an ever growing list of species that make their home at cova fullola.
This biodiversity only occurs in the olive grove because we choose to farm in the way that we do, giving wild plants, insects, reptiles and mammals the best chance to survive and thrive. There is no reason why agriculture and nature cannot coexist in this way. When we eventually reach the end of our lives we will leave this soil nourished and fertile, rather than depleted and barren like the non-organic and intensive olive groves we see elsewhere.
