Excerpt from Patrick Leigh Fermor ‘s piece Swish! Swish! Swish! about the the olive harvest on the Mani peninsula written for the Greek edition of Mani (1958) This video is the result of an excellent collaboration between Cristina Stribacu and Dr. Simon Poole, a Cambridge based medical doctor and author, internationally renowned for his study and research on the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. Olive trees have been the ultimate source of artistic inspiration since ancient times down to our days. The purpose of the video is to inspire Olive Oil producers around the globe and provide them with an educational tool in order to communicate the richness and the significance of the olive tree culture. We aim to inspire and empower their endeavour so as to continue to cultivate using sustainable and environmental friendly methods. A reminder that we borrow earth and nature from our children and generations to come. Have a great, inspiring trip in the majesty of the timeless olive garden through Patric Leigh Fermor’s words!
