I've just come back from a visit to Tuscany Italy,where I stayed with some lovely people in a little villa with a small garden in which there is a dead Pheonix Canarensis Palm tree, some 10m high. They are a creative family, with some graffiti art etc in the garden where they hold little art/ music events for the locals.
They are keen to use the dead tree as an feature and are hoping they may find a chainsaw sculptor who is interested in creating a work of art in the garden, in return for food and accommodation. I appreciate many of the creative people deserve appropriate payment for their work but maybe there is some interest in a kind of working holiday in a lovely Tuscan seaside environment?
Please contact me if the idea amuses you.
