I am a positive, happy person who loves all aspects of my life. I love the beach, animals and children. I am a people’s person. I grew up in the Kruger Park and that is where my love for animals and people comes from. Love working with people from all over the world. I have three beautiful children and an amazing mom whom I adore. I received the most precious gift of all very recently when I was blessed by becoming a grandmother. Like most young people and since I can remember, I had a dream… I just wanted to be a teacher when I grow up. Like a lot of young people, I did not have the means to pursue my dream. At the age of sixteen, I started working in the Kruger Park tourist shop as a cashier during school holidays. Naturally, when I matriculated and because I could not attend a college or university to study what my heart desired, I started working for SANParks. I worked in different departments from the tourist shop to finally being promoted to year in advance bookings at SANParks head office. I will always “want to be a teacher in my heart but never will I be disappointed for the foundation I had. Working for SANParks gave me the opportunity, confidence and knowledge to work with tourists from all over the world. They had a huge hand in the way I see people and the quality of work I offer. I will always be thankful. I am a loyal, loving, understanding, empathetic and kind individual. I learned a lot about people over the years. People tend to confide in me and I am a very good listener. I can solve problems easily because people listen to me and usually follow my advice. It makes it a lot easier to solve problems in the work place concerning personnel and clients too. I have a sixth sense about people and it usually turns out to be spot on. The way in which I treat people, they will follow my orders without question. I learned a lot during my years working for different companies and working in different departments and environments. I know how to handle myself and every situation and challenge I am faced with. I am hard working and not afraid to learn new things. I am a quick learner and I always follow through on everything I do. Even if it is a new challenge I have to tackle and always give a hundred and one percent doing everything that has to be done. I am not afraid to walk the extra mile and to do everything to the best of my ability. I gained a lot of professional work experience. This includes... working as a reservations officer, receptionist, personal assistant, book keeper, financial administrator, school tutor and even running my own business for several years. I loved all the careers I pursued but my favorite by far was the work I have done with clients. It would be a honor and privilege to invest the experience I have gained and the skills I have mastered into your company and to share it with the world.
I am outgoing, dedicated and love new challenges! I believe that a person should work on developing their skills and learning new things all the time. I love sports gaming and fishing during my “downtime”. I believe treating people with integrity and respect will always yield great relationships. I love spending as much time as I can with my family and loved ones. I believe working together as a whole we can achieve great things. I am very optimistic and very open minded when dealing with day-to-day life. I love my animals as they truly bring the best out of me if I have had a long challenging day. Working as a Manager in the Hospitality industry for nearly a decade I have learnt many valuable lessons and feel I have grown each year bringing great personality, enthusiasm and constructive ideas to the table. I have a positive outlook on life and I wish to share that positivity with you someday! Showing compassion for others in this industry and any industry I believe will always get positive results. I am, because we are. Bound together in ways that are invisible, humanity is all about being one. Caring unconditionally, and sharing with everyone around us. Combining a salient philosophy of caring and sharing, with the strength of unity and community. We can determine the course of humanity and our destiny, by challenging the digital status quo. “I am, because we are. Together.”

I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do, I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best. In my last job, this passion led me to challenge myself daily and learn new skills that helped me to do better work. I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goals for myself, so I have something to strive toward. I’m not comfortable with settling, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness. I am an excellent communicator. I pride myself on making sure people have the right information because it drives better results. Most business issues stem from poor communication, so I feel a responsibility to keep everyone on the same page. I am results-oriented, constantly checking in with the goal to determine how close or how far away we are and what it will take to make it happen. I find this pressure inspiring and a great motivator for the rest of the team. I am highly organized. I always take notes, and I use a series of tools to help myself stay on top of deadlines. I like to keep a clean workspace and create a logical filing method so I’m always able to find what I need. I find this increases efficiency and helps the rest of the team stay on track, too. I’m a people-person. I love meeting new people and learning about their lives and their backgrounds. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making people feel comfortable in my presence.
I am a fun loving guy! I am a lover of spirituality, people, animals, arts, music, philosophy, psychology, books and technology! My hometown is in Elsies River, a small community in Cape Town, where I am currently residing as well. In primary school, I was bullied for reasons which at that time I could make sense of but do now. My need to fit in helped me discover my love for chess and classical music. I was ''religiously'' brought up in the Christian tradition until it stopped serving me around 2012 completely. I was completely lost especially after my mom's passing in 2011 from which I asked the question to myself that there must be more to life than earthly wealth because I simply discovered that it doesn't bring the happiness that my parents and society told me. I knew that there must be more to life. My deep need to help my family after my mom's passing led my to cut my investment banking career in Johannesburg as a quant very short. I follow the Buddhist way life as best as I can because it help me understand the nature of my own suffering and of others. I simply hate to see people suffer. I try to help people in which ever way I can. I finished a Bsc in Mathematics and Statistics, honours in Computational Finance and an incomplete MSc. I worked as a Senior Fund Accountant mostly. I am a part-time musician and love dancing. I love people but I am more introverted. I most prefer my own company. I am too sensitive lol. I love teaching as well! I was a part-time lecturer in Statistics but I tutored maths from my second year. This also helped myself and parents. My hard work helped me to get get scholarhips to cover the rest of my studies. I worked as a barman. I am a part-time musician. Played in the Cape Town Youth Philharmonic and my music center's symphony orchestras. I love and thank all my teachers! Everyone is generally my teacher. A little more about my childhood. It was ok with the usual joyful moments and traumas. I did what my parents expected and was occasionally rewarded. I attended school in my community until my need for better education and passion for music landed me a scholarship to go to any school of my choice. This all happened in the middle of my high school career. The switch opened my eyes. Better education where suddenly from the one of the top students at my old high school to the weakest. But I was welcomed nevertheless by all! As a member of the LGBTI community, it created a loving safe space to come out to.
Our palm collecting began some thirty years ago, when we became members of the Palm & Cycad Society of QLD. In 1987, we decided to create a nursery and called it Coast Road Palms, at the time our address was Coast Road so we went with this. A few years ago, the street name was changed to Bennett Springs Drive. We were proud of how we began, many of our old customers would remember the dusty gravel road before we had development around us. We decided to keep our business name and not change with the new street name. Planting began in 1987, even before we built our home. A cyclone fence went up, a bore was sunk, reticulation put down and the planting started. We had a lot of help from friends who volunteered (they probably thought we were crazy at the time), but they never doubted because anyone who knew my husband Lou, knew that he was a determined person who once he set his mind to things, there was no going back. I suppose it was his courage and determination that pulled us through. In 1988/89, we were hit by a severe frost that at the time almost wiped out all our stock. Many nurseries were in the same boat. We kept going, not looking back. At the time, Lou was also working full time at another work place, so he had two full time jobs going. One nightshift and one dayshift. Finally, in 1995 he made a break and decided to work full time in our nursery, by then we had developed a good clientele. Some of our original customers have remained friends and often visit and have a chat about old times and how it all began. Over the following years, we have continued planting and collecting and are still collecting today. We are always interested in something new and rare and know that although it may not grow here in Perth we are always willing to give it a go, after all it is a challenge.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio

I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is not ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature.

1904 was a landmark year for the industry and for the business which was to become the current-day Blue Diamond Group. In it's earliest 'guise', Blue Diamond originally emerged as the Fruit Export Company in the beautiful island of Guernsey, Channel Islands. The company was created by a group of prominent local businessmen whose family links still feature today. John W. Dorey was appointed manager and his son, Percy, was company secretary. the latter proved to be the driving force of the Fruit Export Company. The company's founders displayed their business skills at an early stage when they acquired a distribution company in the UK with agents scaling the length and breadth of England. This network became the backbone of Fruit Export's success in getting tomatoes to market. A further stroke of ingenuity saw the company buy wicker baskets locally and go on to commission the manufacture of huge numbers of wooden baskets and then tomato trays. Today, Blue Diamond is recognised as a genuine Guernsey success story and continues to be owned and managed on the island with plants still at the heart of the business. Blue Diamond now employs around 3,000 people at its Head Office and 30 garden centres across the UK & Channel Islands.

Moglie, madre, nonna, Paola Thaon di Revel ama i fiori e la natura. L'eredità è il suo background. È cresciuta in una famiglia dove la disciplina militare era un dato di fatto, così come la voglia di divertirsi.

Oggi, i sette nipoti e la casa di campagna, regalano giornate intensamente soddisfacenti. Wife, mother, grandmother, Paola Thaon di Revel loves flowers and nature. Heritage is her background.

Italia che Cambia è un’associazione di promozione sociale e una testata giornalistica registrata. Raccontiamo, mappiamo e mettiamo in rete chi produce un cambiamento positivo dal basso del nostro paese, in una direzione di maggiore sostenibilità ed equità economica, sociale, ambientale, culturale. talia che cambia è un progetto che vuole raccontare, mappare e mettere in rete quel pezzo di paese che di fronte a un problema si attiva per cambiare concretamente le cose senza delegare o aspettare che qualcuno lo faccia al suo posto. Vuole inoltre offrire strumenti di facilitazione dei processi di trasformazione positiva in atto nel Paese con l’obiettivo di far emergere le potenzialità di coloro che “vogliono cambiare” fornendo l’esempio, il know how e il supporto della rete di progetti già in atto. Il tutto ispirato dalla consapevolezza/visione espressa da Paul Hawken nel suo “Moltitudine inarrestabile”: noi siamo già maggioranza, ma non lo sappiamo. Pensiamo di essere soli e sole, isolati e isolate, “strani”, e invece siamo parte di un grande movimento mondiale. Un movimento silenzioso e frammentato che però è pronto a emergere e mostrarsi in tutte le sue sfaccettature. Il nostro obiettivo, quindi, è duplice: da un lato far emergere questa italica moltitudine – che abbiamo potuto incontrare in anni di incontri in giro per le venti regioni italiane – e dall’altro contribuire alla costruzione di un nuovo paradigma culturale che metta al centro la demercificazione della realtà, le relazioni umane, la facilitazione, i processi non giudicanti, la sostenibilità umana, ambientale, economica e sociale. Per farlo abbiamo realizzato un giornale, una mappa, dei portali territoriali e una campagna di attivazione dei territori attraverso le proposte emerse dalle “visioni 2040”. La visione e i valori che hanno dato vita al progetto Italia che Cambia sono racchiusi nei “Sette Sentieri” che sono quindi alla base della selezione delle realtà presenti nella mappa e delle notizie proposte ogni giorno. Sette sentieri di transizione verso una società più equa, giusta e sostenibile. I vari punti non li abbiamo scelti noi dal nulla: ci sono stati segnalati, raccontati, trasmessi dalle realtà che abbiamo incontrato lungo il cammino. Li abbiamo voluti scrivere, raggruppandoli e organizzandoli per rendere espliciti gli obiettivi e gli ideali che ci muovono e che stanno alla base del nostro progetto. Non sono dei punti di partenza ma di arrivo. Le realtà che raccontiamo, che abbiamo incontrato e che potete trovare sulla mappa, pur seguendo ciascuna il suo sentiero particolare, condividono con noi questo percorso e mirano verso la stessa meta. Inoltre grazie ad un lavoro che nel 2015 ha coinvolto oltre 100 ambasciatori e ambasciatrici, rappresentanti di altrettante associazioni, comitati, imprese, università, istituzioni, abbiamo scritto 17 documenti di visione/azione per cambiare l’Italia. Li abbiamo chiamati Visioni 2040 e vanno ad integrare, approfondendoli, gli elementi che emergono dai Sette Sentieri. Nel marzo 2018 è uscito il libro “E ora si cambia”, che raccoglie i documenti riassunti ed aggiornati, a cura di Andrea Degl’Innocenti e Daniel Tarozzi.
La Cooperativa Petraviva: cuore e natura per un progetto condiviso da un gruppo di giovani professionisti, un sogno ed una realtà. Tutela dell’ambiente, produzione di fruttiferi di Sicilia, conservazione della biodiversità, interpretazione ambientale e promozione delle tradizioni: tutto questo è la Cooperativa Petraviva Madonie… un progetto per le Madonie… una finestra che si affaccia sul mondo delle opportunità di sviluppo derivanti dalla difesa della natura, secondo le linee della moderna economia, la green economy e perché la biodiversità costituisce infatti il nostro capitale naturale, alla base della vita e dell’economia. Ma anche valore alla cultura e alla storia agroalimentare dei luoghi e delle tradizioni che con la gestione di Villa Sgadari concessa da parte dell´Ente Parco delle Madonie, fa di questo gruppo di lavoro un volano di diffusione culturale a 360° che intende portare avanti un progetto integrale e integrato! Tra progetti per la scuola e diffusione culturale, progetti sulla biodiversità e recupero delle specie vegetali da frutto, eventi di promozione culturale, Petraviva si inserisce orgogliosa nello sviluppo locale ed economia del territorio delle aree interne Siciliane. Il vivaio Petraviva Madonie nasce con l’obiettivo di salvaguardare la biodiversità e i sapori della frutta antica dimenticata. La riproduzione in vivaio permette il rinnovamento del patrimonio vegetale, con particolare attenzione alle peculiarità territoriali Siciliane. L’esperienza di ricerca, localizzazione, raccolta e conservazione delle varietà antiche da frutto della Sicilia, condotta dai soci della Cooperativa in collaborazione prima con il Dipartimento di Botanica dell’Ateneo Palermitano e adesso con il C.I.R.I.T.A. (Centro Interdipartimentale di Ricerche sulla Interazione Tecnologia-Ambiente) Università degli Studi di Palermo sono alla base della nostra esperienza imprenditoriale vivaistica. La Cooperativa Petraviva Madonie crede nell’importanza di rafforzare il legame tra sistema scolastico e il mondo del lavoro attraverso azioni informative mirate e percorsi progettuali sperimentali come quelli attivati durante l’anno scolastico 2015-2016. Inoltre la Cooperativa Petraviva Madonie è interessata a favorire e sostenere la ricerca di possibili strategie per migliorare gli esiti delle prestazioni degli studenti nelle discipline Tecnico-Professionali, con un’attenzione particolare alle esperienze laboratoriali, così come previsto e richiesto dalla riforma scolastica; puntando ad un innalzamento complessivo delle competenze in rapporto agli standard europei. Gli studenti possono operare scelte consapevoli soltanto attraverso un’adeguata informazione sulle opportunità offerte sia dal mercato del lavoro che dal sistema di istruzione e formazione, onde prevenire e contrastare i fenomeni di abbandono e dispersione.

Mandy Shrimpton is the quintessential people’s person. Mandy believes that success is measured by the quality of our human-relationships rather than the results we manifest through sheer will. Mandy firmly established herself as the heart of the non-profit organisation that she co-founded and ran with her adoring husband for 17 years. Mandy loves walking in nature with her family, hugging trees, and preserving the environment. She also enjoys being creative and is particularly fond of painting flowers. As a very happily married and devoted mother to four children, Mandy has cultivated a deep appreciation for the culinary arts and relishes the spare moments she gets to watch her favourite cooking shows. This initiative reflects how Mandy sees the world, helping to create positive synergy. Fostering unity and courteous community, building partner relationships and motivating affiliates. Born and bred in Africa, Mandy understands the concept of Ubuntu. I am, because we are. Together we can make the world a better place. Using her skills and experience to make a difference. Helping others see through the fog of new technologies, avoid common marketing mistakes and develop better business strategies.

Shining a light on the path to prosperity, while not losing our footing in family values and humble humanity. Sharing is caring, while enriching ourselves spiritually and materially. We cannot give freely, if we don't have. "Sometimes the world makes more sense, through the eyes of a mother. Using protective instinct and family fortitude, to help one another." ~ Mandy Shrimpton
Orti Generali si trova in un parco fluviale, sulle rive del torrente Sangone, nel quartiere Mirafiori sud nella città di Torino, a cinque minuti dal capolinea del tram quattro. Prima un parco in abbandono con un’area agricola residuale, oggi un parco di orti urbani aperto a cittadini e visitatori grazie ad un bando di concessione della Città di Torino. COME SOSTENIBILITÀ AMBIENTALE Si coltiva esclusivamente con metodo biologico. Nell’area reintroduciamo alberi di varietà antiche, con una speciale attenzione alle piante che favoriscono la ripopolazione d'insetti impollinatori. INNOVAZIONE TECNOLOGICA Sperimentiamo la tecnologia al servizio dell’ambiente: per ridurre lo spreco di acqua, una centralina rileva meteo, umidità, temperatura locali, e aziona all’occorrenza un impianto d'irrigazione centralizzato per tutti gli orti. SOSTENIBILITÀ SOCIALE Ospitiamo borse lavoro e tirocini formativi, in particolare per soggetti svantaggiati. In collaborazione con l’ASL e con associazioni, realizziamo percorsi riabilitativi e di ortoterapia. SUPPORTO ALLA COLTIVAZIONE Proponiamo un sito con il calendario delle colture, schede delle piante e alert per avvisarvi quando è il momento dei trattamenti biologici preventivi. Sarete sempre assistiti dallo staff presente tra gli orti o raggiungibile telefonicamente. PERCHÉ Orti Generali nasce con l’obiettivo di costruire un modello d'impresa sociale per la trasformazione e la gestione di aree agricole residuali cittadine. Il progetto è l’esito di un percorso di 4 anni di progettazione partecipata che ha coinvolto scuole, associazioni, ortolani e abitanti di Mirafiori → Miraorti. Grazie alle sue componenti d'innovazione sociale e tecnologica Orti Generali vince il bando indetto dal MIUR Smart cities and Communities and Social Innovation e dal 2016 al 2019 ha avviato una fase di ricerca supervisionata dall’Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia. CHI Orti Generali è un progetto dell’Associazione Coefficiente Clorofilla, oggi Orti Generale APS, ed è curato da Stefano Olivari e Matteo Baldo. Stefano, diplomato all’École du Paysage di Versailles, ha scelto la riqualificazione delle sponde del torrente Sangone per la sua tesi. Già ideatore del progetto Miraorti, oggi è un affermato paesaggista. Matteo, educatore professionale e dottore magistrale in Sociologia, ha scelto l’orticoltura urbana, con indagini esplorative e quantitative sul progetto Miraorti ed il parco agricolo del Sangone. Il progetto è nato da un’idea di Isabella Devecchi, e grazie al prezioso aiuto di Marco Bottignole.
La passione di Marco, nasce 15 anni fa: "I primi sette esemplari mi erano stati portati dal veterinario condotto del comune". Da quella piccola riserva ha preso il via una ricerca che non ha risparmiato nemmeno gli angoli più nascosti del globo. Oggi il vivaio dei fratelli Gramaglia è uno dei più forniti in Europa. Marco, 60 anni, uno dei massimi esperti del settore, nel 1999 fu anche invitato a Parigi per mettere in mostra le sue creature. "Tutto nasce dalla curiosità, se non sei curioso non puoi fare il vivaista - assicura - Di peperone (così chiama tutte le varietà di peperoncino, Ndr) al mondo ne esistono tremila tipi: sono il frutto degli incroci di 23 specie, ognuna delle quali sintetizza sostanze chimiche diverse. È così che ho scoperto che i peperoni esistono di tutti i colori, anche viola e nero, ma non blu". L'attività di Gramaglia non è dedicata solo ai peperoni. Il vivaio, un fazzoletto di terra di medie dimensioni a due passi dalla Dora, si occupa solo di piante aromatiche e medicinali, un settore in cui rientrano anche i peperoncini per le loro proprietà antiossidanti. La specializzazione è anche la forza di un'attività radicata che dal 1896 ha già dato lavoro a quattro generazioni di Gramaglia. "In questo settore le aziende che si specializzano sono quelle che riescono a sopravvivere meglio alla crisi". La parola d'ordine è stupire e Marco, che nell'animo è anche un uomo di marketing prestato all'agricoltura, lo sa: per questo ai suoi clienti propone tradizionali salvia e timo ma anche vere rarità, come una pianta malgascia dalle foglie frizzanti. "Bisogna incuriosire", assicura pensando alla sua clientela composta al 90 per cento da consumatori finali, appassionati di orticoltura o sostenitori del fai-da-te biologico. E di sicuro stupisce la sua personale collezione di piante velenose. "Non saranno commestibili, ma sono bellissime". Oggi il vivaio dei fratelli Gramaglia è uno dei vivai collezionisti di piante aromatiche più importanti e prestigiosi in Europa. Marco's passion was born 15 years ago: "The first seven specimens were brought to me by the veterinarian who was led by the municipality". From that small reserve a search has begun that has not spared even the most hidden corners of the globe. Today the Gramaglia brothers' nursery is one of the best supplied in Europe. Marco, 60, one of the leading experts in the sector, was also invited to Paris in 1999 to show off his creatures. "Everything stems from curiosity, if you are not curious you cannot be a nurseryman - he assures - There are three thousand types of pepper (as he calls all the varieties of chili pepper, Ed.) In the world: they are the result of the crossings of 23 species, each of which synthesizes different chemicals. That's how I discovered that peppers come in all colors, even purple and black, but not blue. " Gramaglia's business is not just dedicated to peppers. The nursery, a medium-sized patch of land a stone's throw from the Dora, deals only with aromatic and medicinal plants, a sector that also includes chillies for their antioxidant properties. Specialization is also the strength of a deep-rooted activity that since 1896 has already given work to four generations of Gramaglia. "In this sector, the companies that specialize are the ones that manage to survive the crisis best". The watchword is to amaze and Marco, who at heart is also a marketing man lent to agriculture, knows this: for this reason he offers his customers traditional sage and thyme but also real rarities, like a Malagasy plant with sparkling leaves . "We have to intrigue", he assures, thinking of his clientele made up of 90 per cent end consumers, horticultural enthusiasts or supporters of organic do-it-yourself. And he certainly amazes his personal collection of poisonous plants. "They won't be edible, but they're beautiful." Today the nursery of the Gramaglia brothers is one of the most important and prestigious nursery collectors of aromatic plants in Europe.
Da anni, il Vivaio Anna Peyron è un giardino in cui crescono e si moltiplicano delle piante. Certo, quando andrete in vivaio troverete rose, ortensie e clematis in vaso: da comprare. Ma vedrete anche (e soprattutto) come diventa la pianta adulta, quanto spazio richiede e con quali altre piante meglio si accompagna. E troverete chi vi suggerisce come adattare la pianta al giardino. E voi alla pianta. Cosa potete aspettarvi da una rosa, ad esempio? A cosa invece è bene rinunciare, per non andare incontro a delusioni? Dovete potare o potete dimenticare le cesoie? E come concimare? Anna Peyron, Saskia Pellion di Persano, Vincenzo Gastini, vi daranno una risposta a tutte queste domande e a tante altre ancora che potrete verificare sul campo. Perché il vivaio comincia là dove finisce il giardino. O viceversa. E troverete arredi e ornamenti, perché anche quelli fanno parte di un giardino. Vecchi mobili, vasi e complementi d'arredo, presentati in vivaio dal Labirinto del Giardiniere. Sarà un'occasione per scegliere, insieme alle piante, tutto ciò che fa diventare il giardino un piacere. Anna ha cominciato con le rose ed è diventata una delle più importanti esperte oggi in Europa e nel mondo.
With thirteen hectares of parkland and a great heritage of monumental trees, Levico SPA park is the most important historical park of the Province of Trento. Its history dates back to the end of the 19th century and is closely linked to the establishment of Levico Terme as a spa town of European standing. The construction of the “Grand Hotel delle Terme” was the first step in a major transformation involving the German landscape-gardener Georg Ziehl (1873 - 1953) who transformed an area of countryside into a large informal design park. At the end of the 19th century many tree species in vogue in the nineteenthcentury parks had been planted: Sequoiadendron giganteum, the giant sequoia of California, Magnolia sempervirens the great white-flowered magnolia, Fagus sylvatica 'purpurea', the monumental red beech that still today dominates the area at the entrance to the main promenade, cedars and redwood trees. After many years and a restoration project, at the end of October 2018 the Vaia storm caused serious damages to the park: 216 large trees were uprooted and three hectares of lawns and flower beds were destroyed. Immediately the works for the recovery started, a project has been approved and is now in an advanced stage of realization. The park has been reshaped and some of its botanical and landscape values strengthened. In the park of Levico today we find a new birch wood, a new collection of conifers and many deciduous trees with characteristic colored foliage. In spring 50,000 bulbs are blooming, different species of tulips, Allium and Muscari. The lawns host numerous herbaceous species that bloom throughout the growing season. In spring the park hosts a garden show, ''Ortinparco'', an exhibition-festival focusing on the vegetable garden and the garden with temporary installations, plants and flowers, educational workshops, music, seminars and horticultural exhibitions. Summer is the season of educational programs, concerts, book presentations and shows. The park is operated without the use of chemicals, and hosts Villa Paradiso, the headquarter of the park's offices and temporary exhibitions.
Il nostro raccolto è il risultato di un lavoro attento, appassionato e genuino, che unisce gli antichi saperi dell'agricoltura e le moderne innovazioni della tecnologia. Orteat è una start up innovativa che nasce a fine 2018 da un’idea del suo founder Luca Siciliano, produttore agricolo BIO, per rispondere ad una chiara esigenza del mercato: da un lato i consumatori sono sempre più attenti a conoscere il cibo che consumano, la sua provenienza e chi lo produce; dall'altro i produttori cercano nuove modalità di vendita al fine di valorizzare i propri prodotti e venderli al giusto prezzo. Nasce Orteat, un orto biologico per tutti in Italia. Attraverso la piattaforma è possibile ricevere direttamente a domicilio, in tutta Italia, frutta e verdura biologica appena raccolta e di stagione, conoscendo esattamente la provenienza e il produttore che l’ha coltivata. Possono ordinare la frutta sia clienti privati (B2C) sia aziende, inclusi i rivenditori che vogliono proporre ai propri Clienti frutta appena raccolta e di provenienza certa. Investire in Orteat significa entrare a fare parte di un’azienda che unisce all’obiettivo economico anche un forte impatto sociale: diffondere e sostenere un’agricoltura che rispetti l’ambiente, che promuova la biodiversità e che valorizzi il lavoro dei produttori.
