Squeaky Wheel Gets the (Olive) Oil
I must share the most beautiful birthday gift I received this year – my very own olive tree from Nudo Italia that is adopted under my name and sends me bottles of its fresh olive oil throughout 2015.
The name of the grove is Bestagno, set in the foothills of the Italian Alps on the Riviera. Bestagno’s trees are clustered around the romantic ruins of Castello di Bestagno. This grove produces olive oil that is described as “grassy green with herbs and crunchy bell pepper.”
The grove is taken care of by Toby, a 21 year old boy with profound autism, who found meaningful work in the groves because of his deep love of and interest in olive oil.
There are still 112 orphan trees in the grove waiting for adoption! Give them your love and they in turn will give you their oil.
Thanks, Jeff and Chris. Olive you.
