Adopt an olive

The Adopt an olive tree campaign began in 2017 from the desire to involve the community in the recovery of an approximately two-hectare century-old olive grove, on the hills of Passignano sul Trasimeno. The recovery activity, which began in 2016 with funding from the European Community, continues today thanks to the volunteer work of the members and the sole economic contribution of the Association.

The olive grove was cleaned out, the thorn bushes and weeds were removed and the olive trees were pruned according to the vase-shaped method, and they started producing olives again. A bee-friendly olive grove: we host some bee families and we adopt good practices in defence of insects. We only cut the grass after the flowering period, and harmful chemical products are not used.

Each adopter can, if they so wish, participate in all of the operations required to tend to the olive grove and propose initiatives to raise awareness of the value of the olive grove through group activities (concerts, outdoor exercise, walks to learn how to recognise wild herbs...).

Anyone can adopt or give the gift of an adoption!

Adoption lasts one farm year (from November to October of the following year) and at the end of the harvest, the adopter shall receive two 0.5-litre bottles of new oil. Each adopter will get the Newsletter updating them on what has been done in the olive grove and the health of the trees.

When can you adopt an olive tree? From September 1st to August 31st.

All fields are required.
