“If you deconstruct Greece, you will in the end see an olive tree, a grapevine and a boat remain. That is, with as much, you reconstruct her” are Odysseas Elytis’ words, proving how inextricably connected the olive is with Greece.
The harvest of olive trees begin at the end of September and lasts until mid December, depending on the area, the variety and the desired maturity.
Yesterday we picked our own olives from the olive trees in the garden of our school in Athens. We also talked to our students about the importance the harvest has for Greeks.
We are really proud of our crop and we hope it is even better in the future!
