Son Moragues on protecting rural island heritage

Valldemossa estate explain innovative stewardship program campaign in Rialto Living store

Homestore Rialto Living was the venue for a fascinating talk by olive oil producers Son Moragues, about the first Mallorcan land stewardship program and organic olive oil production. Guests enjoyed a glass of cava and fingerfood while hearing about innovative regeneration projects for the Serra de Tramuntana and protection of the island’s traditional rural landscapes.

Centenary olive groves, ancient oak forests and Mallorca’s richest dry stone architectural heritage are under threat of disappearing and with them the social economic fabric of villages in the region.

Joe Holles and Uta Werner, from the Valldemossa Son Moragues estate, explained how they have set themselves the task of recovering ancient olive groves through stewardship programs, with the aim of encouraging others on the island to follow suit.
