Villaggio Verde Support Children in Need with DIY SOS 'The Big Build'
Villaggio Verde were delighted to support the DIY SOS team during project 'Little Miracles' at the Spinney in Peterborough. Working with Nick Knowles and Chris Beardshaw, the old specimen Olive tree took centre stage in the new sensory garden designed by Chris. The olive tree was craned into position during the 'Big Build'.
Olive Trees in the sky
They say a picture is worth a thousand words - so rather than try to describe the amazing art installation, where Olive Tree "Bombs" hung up in the air, at the Whitecross Street Party, let's show you the pictorial record of the making, installing and finished product.
What follows is a pictorial record of the making, installing and finished product of the 'Tree Bombs' at Whitecross Street Party, created by The Edible Bus Stop (www.TheEdibleBusStop.org) .
Here's a short video The Edible Bus Stop had made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMV_sGAWp5w

Olive Trees on TV with Alan Titchmarsh
One of our latest adventures on TV was with the well-loved Alan Titchmarsh show - the aptly named "Love your Garden".
We supplied a range of gorgeous old olive trees, delivered them to the property where they were filming, and we LOVE the results. Yes, Alan truly has got green fingers - but with all that lavender and those olive trees, we'd like to suggest they are purple and silver too!
The episode was shown on 9th July 2013.
