Growing and Processing Olives at Home
Jim DeFrisco, Contra Costa Master Gardener
Diablo Valley College, Horticulture Dept., Building OH
11 AM to 3 PM
|INFO:||Olive harvest season is here! We will hear from Jim DeFrisco who takes care of 15 olive trees of his own. We will learn how to grow them, and process them to eat. We will hear about some varieties that don't even need to be processed to be edible! Also there will be tips on how to beat those bothersome olive fruit flies that can spoil the fruit.
Please bring fruit from your yard to share, finger food, plants to donate for the drawing, and your questions.
