Elixir harvests heritage fruits and transforms this resource during public events into all sorts of products that are served during events of Enough Room for Space.

The public orchard surrounding the FeliXart Museum (5 HA) consists of many different sorts of fruit and nut trees and other edible plants. The orchard was once owned by Felix De Boeck, an early modernist Belgian painter who used it to make his living and work independently without having to sell his work.

It is currently maintained by the Province but it's resources are scarcely used; most of it becomes fallen fruit. The public orchard of FeliXart Museum is located around the corner of the Enough Room for Space HQ.
