About Our Program
Since 2012 we have planted Olive Trees all over Sicily ... let us reconnect you with your Sicilian Roots!
Your recipient will recognize and appreciate the thoughtful caring nature of this magnificent Italian gift olive tree planted in their ancestral homeland.
Your gift of a donation of an olive tree back to Sicily or Italy is, for many people, a completion of the circle of life started by a loved one who immigrated to America seeking a better life. Our trees are planted as part of a beautification project in Italy and Sicily in groves that we have selected with careful consideration. They are tended by generations of family farmers whose passion is the magnificent olive tree "The Tree of Life".
The tree will be planted in your name or in the name of a family, friend, loved one or to celebrate a milestone. Think of it … a return to the ancestral homeland. Your sponsorship of $229.95 plus shipping of the certificate is a one time cost that covers the purchase, planting, and maintenance of a wonderful and symbolic olive tree. It will forever remain in their name, unlike other memorial trees that are adopted varied lengths of time.
When you sponsor the purchases of a tree, you will receive a beautiful certificate of authenticity. If traveling to Italy or Sicily you the ability to locate your tree in one of several locations to arrange a visit through You Me & Sicily.
A portion of your sponsorship will be donated to The Sicilian Project. A 501-C3 tax exempt organization that raises money from people throughout the United States and issues academic grants in Sicily in order to teach the students how to speak, think and write the English language.
