Features and characters of the individual
The plantation department of the Municipality of Schaerbeek grows a small edible forest. This hawthorn, a fairy tree, is the guardian of this orchard which gathers more than 60 trees, and about 50 species! The Terdelt square is transformed into an incredibly diverse edible wood in the heart of the city. You can find: hazelnut, kiwi, plum, apple, pear, elder, etc.
The gardeners of the municipality invite you to discover this area: "Its aim is to increase bio-diversity in Schaerbeek but also to return to our roots with our indigenous fruit trees. We can find a multitude of fruit tree species like Plums, Pears, Raspberries, Apples, Redcurrants... and other melliferous shrubs like Sambucus, Nandinas, Lavendulas,.....". They invite you to "a little country walk to discover all these trees and shrubs, to marvel at their nourishing aspects, at the fauna and the pollinators who benefit from them. Everyone can find their taste and visual happiness there".
