Ecosystems, species live in them and their genetic structures produce ecological services that maintain life in the Earth. They regulate the climate, the quality of air and water and they provide us foods, fibers, energy, medicines and other strategic resources for the economy, the health and the well-being of people.

To maintain a minimum level of natural resources is necessary for the ecosystems to continue giving us those vital services.

In Alcubilla we are working to maintain the local olive variety known as “Pajarera”, included in“LUQUE–Limited Edition” project.

This project is based on using this olive variety due to its enormous benefits, as wells as biodiversity and organoleoptic characteristics.

Alcubilla 2000 has been selected as “Exemplary Experience” by Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente Foundation in 2011. These experiences are rural initiatives that join a triple benefit: economic, social and environmental. Leadings by environment and country world committed people, they are real examples that give more value to country production as key point to preserve the biodiversity.
