Living Skills: Autumn Olives Pickling Workshop

Olive season starts in April, so now is the perfect time to learn how to get olives from the tree to the table using ancient techniques of curing and preserving, so that you can turn bitter fresh olives into deliciously rich and delectable treats.  

Olive trees are drought and disease resistant plants that thrive in garden hot spots and dry patches, and they are one of the most extensively cultivated fruit crops in the world.  This workshop will pass on ancient skills that have sustained civilizations since the bronze age, and show you how to obtain a yield from these hardy and useful trees.
