"Padrin@ Dame Un Nombre" or "The Name-Giving Project" is an interactive art project which aims to raise ecological awareness about the destruction of the environment in Murcia and the felling of fruit trees, and to create personal links between trees and people. Through the project people will have the opportunity to adopt a tree, which they give a name, and with which they can create a fictional 'family'.
Adopters (Padrin@s) will receive a one year renewable adoption certificate with information and beautiful photos of their adopted tree. Their names, together with the name they give to their tree, will be part of the artwork 'People-Trees Family' which is based on the calligraphy style called the ‘Linking Line'. There is more information about the Linking Line at the end of this form.
The adoption fee is €45. This fee will go entirely to help support the orchard and maintain the trees. Adopters will have the option to pick 30kg of mandarins from their tree and those who can't come to pick the mandarins, we can donate the mandarins in your name to people with needs in the community.
In addition there is a special promotion. All those who adopt 3 or more mandarin trees, will be able to enjoy a 2 night for 2 person stay free in the Refugio, where they can enjoy the peace and beauty of the orchard.
