Europom® 2017 in Olomouc

We were delighted that the Czech Gardening Association took the initiative to organize Europom® 2017, for the first time in Eastern Europe. It gave the opportunity to the organizations of these regions to participate and to show to the local public the importance of the fruit varieties for the genetic diversity.

During the years the Europom® exhibitions were welcoming the public in Luxembourg, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, United Kingdom and now for the first time in a Eastern European country The Czech Republic. More than 30 organizations from most of the European regions were participating and showed their fruit varieties during the 21 Europom® events.

We are pleased to say that the Czech Union of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners was appointed by the European Consorcium and they were a great host of the 2017 Europom meeting. Europom promotes national fruit growers, who focus on historical varieties, which are usually not represented on the market.

We luckily had the opportunity to be part of the event 'Hortikomplex',
the biggest ecological exhibition in the Greater Region with a count of 30 000 visitors .
