Adopt an olive tree!

The bee-friendly ancient olive grove of LE OLIVASTRE at Lake Trasimeno
This is how it works

By donating 20 Euros (minimum) you can adopt a beautiful ancient olive tree in Umbria for 1-year. You can give it a name and watch how it grows. All informations regarding YOUR olive tree will be passed on to you by email – from the olive harvest to the pressing, including all cultivation operations. You may harvest your olives, visit your tree – and even embrace it – anytime you want.

And when the production year is over you will receive a 1000 ml tin of finest organic Umbrian extra virgin olive oil produced by YOUR olive tree in  Umbria.

Why do the olive trees need your help?

By this symbolic gesture of an adoption you support the recovery of one of the many bee friendly ancient olive groves in Italy which have been abandoned by the owners because so many farmers cannot invest in the modern cultivation techniques anymore and also they suffer too much from the merciless business practices of the big food companies. 

Le Olivastre

Your donation goes directly to the Association for Social Development and Support LE OLIVASTRE, which has been founded in 2014 by three strong women who – under sustainable conditions and without the use of synthetic fertilizers or chemicals – try to promote the recovery of such a grove. In addition they carry out promotional and educational initiatives to keep alive a millennia-old tradition in Umbria.

By the way… such an adoption makes a perfect and unique present for a friend.

Important: If you stay at Casa Lauretana for at least 5 nights, host Barbara will assume the costs of your adoption for an olive tree.
