We have adopted a tree! The "Cooking Without Borders" team has adopted an olive tree in the Fiorano region of Marche, just outside of Ripatransone. While on our forthcoming trip in July, we will be making our way to the agriturismo to visit our tree and speak with Paulo and Paulo Berretta, the caretakers of the grove.

A little bit about the Fiorano grove where our tree lives:

"If sharing a hillside with an organic vineyard, an almond grove and fruit trees is your idea of the good life, this olive grove is for you. The grove is south west facing overlooking the fertile Piceno hills 15 km from the sea and 300m above sea level. The variety of olives and terroire make for an oil of intense aromas. Organic."
