Description

Apadrina un Olivo began working in Oliete (Aragón) 7 years ago, with 100.000 abandoned centenary olive trees. The goal was to recover the abandoned olive grove by involving society to generate a sustainable economy in the place fixing population and wealth, thus avoiding its disappearance. As of today, Oliete is already a successful case with 10.000 recovered trees, 5.000 godparents and 18 families working full-time in the town allowing the school and town services to be kept open. In addition, they have created the “Mi Olivo” oil brand, whose use supports small farmers in towns with less than 500 inhabitants.
