#WORKDAY AT THE OLIVE GROVE

Olive trees in full bloom greeted our amazing volunteers during the workday we held at our Roha organic olive grove. We set up biological control traps for the olive fruit flies that can damage our trees as a substitute for poisonous insecticide sprays that are widely used elsewhere.A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped, we truly enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing you again next time!


You can see more lovely pictures taken that day by Rudy Chaim on his Facebook page.
