Connecting gardens, groups and growers to create a more resilient food future in Darebin

Olives to Oil 2024 wrap up

Darebin, Merri-Bek and Yarra Councils partnered with CERES 3000acres to host the third Olives to Oil Northside program over May and June.

The event brought people together to harvest olives from their gardens, nature strips, parks and community gardens – turning fruit that might have otherwise gone to waste into delicious, local olive oil.

176 Darebin residents contributed to this years harvest, collecting 1,367kg of olives, which was turned into 159 litres of oil.

Big thanks to everyone who participated, all the volunteers, Barfold Olives, Chilcorp transport, CERES Fair Food and CERES3000 Brunswick.
