BACKYARD OLIVE OIL
This is a demonstration session showing the steps in making olive oil in the backyard. It is over 2 years since Warrnambool Community Garden last presented this workshop. There are dozens of olive varieties and not all produce much oil, so we focus on the technique not the output. Presenter Rob Porter has been playing with olives for about 5 years but cheerfully says he is just a backyard tinkerer. Participants are encouraged to bring a couple of kg's of their own olives if they have some.
