I have always dreamed of packing up my family and moving to Italy. I don’t know what it is about Italy, the country, the food, the people…it is all so intoxicating and I have dreamed of living there since I was a teenager. I was reminded of those feelings today when I ran across a link to an organic olive grove in Italy (Nudo) that is offering to let you adopt of their 881 olive trees for a year. Imagine dunking your bread in your own oil from your own tree thousands of miles away on a hillside in Italy.
As part of this deal you receive three packages during the year from Nudo. The first will contain a certificate and an information booklet about your tree, the second (in spring) will have 1-3 liters of pressed extra virgin olive oil and the third (in fall) will contain lemon-flavored olive oil and three types of olive oil soaps. Unfortunately, they don’t ship outside of Europe or I be adopting one of these trees. Sigh…maybe soon they will allow adoptees from the US.
