Olive Season at CHW Hadassim

Olives 1

The students from the Agricultural Department at CHW Hadassim are always busy trying new things, whether experimenting with unique vegetation, promoting an environmentally friendly atmosphere in the community, or utilizing Hadassim’s groves!

This past week was no different! Last year, the students planted olive trees and cared for them throughout the duration of the year. As it is November, the optimal month for harvesting olives, the students embarked on picking the olives!

The students collected hundreds of perfectly ripened olives and bottled them; preparing them to be turned into olive oil, soap, or simply eaten!

Have a look at the photos of the students busy at work!
