Olive Picking Sunday 17 May 2015

Goldfields Sustainability Group and Maryborough Street Harvest supporters have an opportunity to access fresh olive oil.

Brett has again generously offered his family’s olives for us to pick.
Date: Sunday 17th May
Time: Start at 9am Pick until ??
Venue: 20 Williamson Court Carisbrook.
Wear clothes appropriate for the weather, eg hat, gloves and comfortable clothing and footwear.


Please bring your own picnic lunch and beverages.
All those who help with the picking can share in the olive oil that is produced. The cost of the pressing of the olives will be shared between all participants. Could be about $8 per litre. We won’t know exact amount until we know how much oil is obtained. The olives will be taken to be pressed in the afternoon but the oil may take a few weeks to be available.

Despite a cold wet day last year we managed to pick enough olives to gain 2 litres of olive oil each at a reasonable price. Let’s see if we can do better this year.

If you need more information or get lost contact Margaret on 0419 508 787


This is a busy weekend but the olives are ready to be picked and can’t wait.

Hope you can help us make it a good harvest.
