Edible forest and vanilla plantation
Come and discover one of the most precious and prized aromas in the world: the vanilla
Where is it from? How does it grow? How are these pods with a pleasant scent produced? During your visit to Finca la Canopea, you will discover how, in a regenerated subtropical ecosystem, the vanilla plant acclimates and produces. During the flowering period (between April and july), you will attend the pollination of the flowers, the harvest of the pods and / or their preparation. My little vanilla production is unique in the Canaries.
At Finca la Canopea, our ambition is to transform a desert into a rich and varied ecosystem made up of many edible plants. I will start the visit by showing you how, using permaculture techniques, we recreate natural habitats where man and nature find their place. It is in this pleasant environment that you will discover how the vanilla plant got acclimated to it and how I have the ambition to cultivate it on a larger scale.
Whether you are alone or a group, the tour is suitable for everyone.
Visit available every thuesday and thursday at 10 and 11.30 am for individuals or groups.
Groups can also contact us to book another moment according to our availabilities.
