Fruiting Olive Trees Needed
Now and again you meet someone who does not care for ice-cream: seldom the soul that has chocolate immunity. Rarer still are people who can resist the allure of fresh Olio Nuovo. Granted, olive oil is of no particular importance to Foodbank clientele, but the hope is, that this year we can create enough of the green nectar to boost fund-raising efforts. The East Bay has thousands of fruiting olive trees, most of which are left to drop on cars or feed squirrels. Italians would think this pazzo. That fruit will create great oil that Oilaholics everywhere will pay good money for. The olive gleaning season starts this November. If you would like your tree gleaned, contact us for details. The trade will probably be some oil for you and some for Urban Farmers to sell for the 2013 Holiday Season. If you yourself are an Oilaholic and are interesting in supporting fundraising efforts, later this year we will publish further details on how to indulge for a good cause.
