The first Olive Harvest Festival held in 2007 was a great success. Over 350 volunteers managed to pick 1460 pounds of olives on harvest day. The Santa Barbara Olive Company pressed and bottled the harvest into about 30 gallons of Virgin Olive Oil. Due to overwhelming demand, the bottles were sold via lottery through the Caltech Bookstore. Come and join Caltech’s Olive Harvest Festival this year for a fun-filled day of harvesting! Buckets will be provided for olive harvesting. They will be located on Olive Walk between Ricketts and Fleming Houses.
