Olive Harvesting

Windamere Park / Programs / Olive Harvesting


The Olive Harvesting is a program that all Windamere Park clients get the rare opportunity to participate in.  The program allows participants to see the harvester and tractor in full production.  The clients are also able to hand pick olives as a community group.  The engagement and participation of all people in this activity is a highlight of the Windamere Programs.

During the program each person was observed and assessed on a few basic skills that are needed in order to actively participate successfully in the program.  This was then recorded.
