Hi, I’m an Olive Tree:
Ancient Greeks saw olive trees as sacred: around this plant Ulysses built his house and with a stick of its wood he fought Cyclops. In the Bible, the dove returns to Noah’s Ark carrying an olive branch, a symbol of the reestablished peace between humans and God.
The olive tree ‒ which from a scientific point of view is not a tree, but a shrub ‒ spread in the eastern Mediterranean thanks to the Sumerians. It was then the Romans who brought oil to Libya and the western coasts. We plant olive trees in Rome, a few steps from the Great Ring Route. The olive grove is managed by the Capodarco cooperative which has been dealing with agriculture and social issues for more than 40 years.
Olea europaea L.
Am I already your favorite tree?
