We have begun harvesting the olives! A great group of wwoofers have joined us here at Gezer to help out and to learn about Israel, kibbutz, organic farming and olives.
The first variety to ripen is the Shimlali, a variety rare in Israel but very common in Tunisia and North Africa.
Here's a photo of the first wwoofers to come this year- Lucia, David, Evelyn and Charisse. We had a great time visiting Ramle. For more photos from this year's harvest, check out the PHOTOS section of the website.

I'm Dani Livney, a member of Kibbutz Gezer, and the manager of the Gezer olives. I love it! I also work as a lawyer, focusing on environmental projects and promoting environmental empowerment and education.
