The Orange Life of the Algarve

In the Southern region of Portugal, the Algarve, you find a surprisingly sweet and juicy orange, considered one of the best in the world. But, production is plagued by commerce, monoculture, and the use of pesticides. This presents an immediate danger to all life around it. A growing movement of organic farmers promotes a feasible and sustainable solution that could ultimately position the Algarve as one of the leading organic orange farming areas in Europe.
