The Olives To Oils Festival is an annual event bringing people together from across Melbourne to harvest olives and have them pressed communally into delicious, local olive oil.

The event encourages people to get together with their family, friends and community to harvest olives from trees across Melbourne, in private and public spaces. CERES 3000acres collect the fruit, take them to Barfold Olives to communally press and then deliver the freshly pressed oil back to the participant.

We’ll be collecting olives at Links Community Garden Lalor in partnership with Whittlesea Food Collective and supported by Whittlesea Council.
