Olive Picking

The EC meets with local olive farmers and provides them with opportunities for seasonal help in the harvesting of their olive crops.o2

This unique experience provides internationals with the opportunity to acquaint themselves with olive farmers, their lives, the problems encountered in farming in the face of the occupation, and the future dreams and desires for these farmers.o1

Internationals receive hands-on experience in the olive harvest (particularly in light of the fact that for many internationals olives originate in bottles and cans!), and the farmers are very appreciative for the extra help.o3
