A girl was running along the paved paths in her grandpa's well-tended garden, dizzy with the smell of berries and mint. She was hurrying to the tree, where honey apricots grow together with peaches (interested in grafting grandpa made amazing and in most instances successful experiments.) The girl would gather fruit and granny would make a pie. And the little one was going to eat it right there, sitting in the shadow of that magical tree.
It was more than twenty years ago… A boy with eager curiosity that only children can experience was studying the history of landscape architecture in Europe, where he spent all his spring and fall vacations. European parks and gardens amazed, impressed and appealed to an eleven-year-old child. At that time he had already known he would be living in Europe. But the happiest time is connected to his summer vacation in the countryside, where accompanied by his grandpa he grew planting material of fruit trees and ornamental plants, seedings of annuals and vegetables. Unforgettable time: remarkable one filled with new discoveries, priceless knowledge and occupation, interesting and favourite.
He was obsessed with a natural desire to learn, explore and take an interest in all that world of greens. And at his fourteen he started working as an assistant of an agronomist in the field of subtropical and tropical plants in the greenhouse of "The central military sanatorium “Arkhangelskoye”...
And here in Spain they finally met, two personalities from Russia passionately in love with their lifework: in the smell of freshly cut greens ready to be planted, in flowers and trees, in fruit and planting stock, having come a long loop, hard and rough, from a childhood dream to its materialisation. These two people are two of us - Alena and Vladimir, co-founders of the landscape company “GreenEv”.
