The Orange Express by Villaggio Verde

RHS Medal - Gold

Garden Name: The Orange Express

Designer: Villaggio Verde

The Orange Express takes you on a journey to a remote area of fruit production, in Spain. The producers are part of a cooperative. Many generations ago, the cooperative laid track and built a small station. There is a Goods-In covered area to enable them to efficiently move their produce from the remote production areas to the wholesale market in the nearby town.

The train line also serves to transport workers into the area, and enables families to visit the nearest town. Friends and visitors also benefit from the service, visiting the producers in their Finca's.

The station house has served the close community for many generations. The families work together to make the station a vibrant place, maintaining planted containers around the station and surrounding areas.
