Olive Oil Harvest
You are invited to participate in a unique Scripps College community tradition: the annual Olive Oil Harvest. At this family-friendly event, you’ll help pick the olives that will be milled into our award-winning Scripps College Olive Oil!
Branches with olives will be laid out on tarps on the ground. Volunteers will “thread through the branches” for olives and collect them in provided buckets. In 2019 we harvested 1,522 pounds of olives collectively!
When registering, you will be asked to select a one-hour time slot; however, you are welcome to stay for as little or long as you like.
Complimentary Meyer lemon olive oil muffin and coffee will be provided.
