Up in the apple tree

Elixir harvests heritage fruits and transforms this resource during public events into all sorts of products which will be used for upcoming events of Enough Room for Space and sold to support it's activities. Felix De Boeck, an early modernist Belgian painter, made his living from this orchard, as a result he was working independently as an artist without the pressure to sell his works.

The public orchard surrounding the Felix Art museum (5 HA) consists of many different sorts of fruit and nut trees and other edible plants. The orchard is maintained by the Province but it's resources are scarcely used; most of it becomes fallen fruit. The public orchard of Felix Art Museum located around the corner of the Enough Room for Space HQ.

We'll make liquor, cider and pizza's in the bakehouse. (Time: 15:00 - 21:00)
