 COME JOIN US FOR OUR OLIVE HARVEST!

NOVEMBER, TBD 2019

julierainbatch3-2-2

We’d like to invite you for a fun day in the country!  Olive harvest is always exciting.  This year’s oil should be wonderful.  We’re hoping lots of friends will come out.  You’ll acquire a new skill for your resume (“experienced olive picker”) while you are making a real contribution to our self-support efforts here at Starcross.  Win-win!

The weather is usually beautiful. Come any time between 8 am and 5 pm and stay as long as you want.  We’ll have a simple buffet lunch available whenever you feel hungry.  And we can teach you how to be an olive picking expert in no time at all!

You should dress comfortably in layers.  Bring a hat and sunscreen.  We’ll provide gloves and bottled water.  Unfortunately at this very busy time we can’t accommodate pets or young children.  But do feel free to bring friends, neighbors, and relatives.

If you can, please let me know you will be coming, how many pickers, and what day and time.  At the last minute if you have others who’d like to come, that is just fine.  The more the merrier!  You can email me at sj@starcross.org or call Karen in our office at 707-886-1919.
