The Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon is located in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d´Azur. The goal of the Parc is to protect the natural, cultural and landscape heritage of the South of France while participating in the economic and social development of the region. Today, the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon faces many challenges (climate change, water pollution, etc.) which endanger biodiversity.
In order to protect its fruit tree heritage, the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon is setting up projects for the conservation, promotion and multiplication of old and local fruit varieties, and promotes as well practices associated with diversified arboriculture.
