At Kapornak, which today belongs to Hodoš administratively, the inhabitants of the village have established an orchard for the conservation of local fruit species within the framework of the Fairy-garden movement widely spread in Hungary. In an area of about 30x50m surrounded by a fence all around, some 60 young fruit trees of a height between 1 and 1.5 m can be found. In the fairy-garden the caretaker person of each tree is indicated by a small sign, so the local inhabitants and the persons respected or honoured by them can really feel that the conservation of the valuable species of fruits rooted deeply in the past and holding the pledge of future is also their own responsibility.
