Save unwanted olives and get free local olive oil

Such a great idea, those with excess olives from their garden can also harvest and deliver them on that weekend.

Olives to Oil 2019

Olives to Oil is an annual celebration that brings communities together in the name of sustainable olive oil. People come together to harvest unwanted olives from Melbourne backyards and street trees to be pressed into local olive oil to take home for free.

We want people to find olive trees in their local areas to harvest, or join us for a harvesting party (we’re hosting one in Ashburton and one in Hawthorn). There are a few details for people to get their head around, so we’d really appreciate it if you could share the harvesting festival with anyone who might be interested in participating: or having them get in touch with us at

The harvesting parties are here:
