Olives - Grow, Harvest & Perfect your Brine

Saturday 21st April at 1.00pm

Easy to grow, delicious to eat, and prolific at harvest time - Olives!

Love them or hate them, they are an attractive and highly functional tree, with a fruit that can be used in a myriad of ways.

Even if you don't have one in your backyard, we all know someone with a tree bending under the weight of the usually abundant annual olive crop, with fruit crying out to be picked and enjoyed.

 Join Richard Seymour, General Manager of Mount Zero Olives, in this fabulous workshop where you'll discuss all things olive!

From olive varieties, to their required care, recognizing when and how best to harvest, and of course olive products, in particular how to brine your own olives perfectly at home.


PS. You're welcome to bring along some of your own olives!

 

Presented by Richard Seymour. Richard and his parents Neil and Jane, of Mount Zero Olives, grow and make olive-based products, bio-dynamically and sustainably, in their olive grove near the Grampians, that was planted in the 1940's. As a family they have spent the past 24 years nurturing the previously abandoned olive grove back into mass production, and building an iconic Australian brand.
