GRAPHIC PICTURES:CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It was one of the most gruesome sights in Cleveland crime history.
Tucson, AZ -
U of A students will soon be
picking the olive trees on campus, to make olive oil. It is all part of a campus sustainability
The olive trees on the campus can
make a mess, but thanks to a grant from the U of A Green Fund, students hope to
harvest the olives and make them into olive oil.
The project manager tells Tucson
News Now that there are more than 200 olive trees on campus, but students will
harvest from only 50 of them.
Harvesting will be a total team effort
to make this U of A olive oil project happen.
Facilities management has agreed to not spray these specific trees to
make sure the olives are safe to eat.
Once the students collect the olives, they will be sent to an olive oil
making company in Queen Creek. What
happens from there is still in the works – but there are talks of bottling the
olive oil and selling it at the U of A Bookstore or giving it to dining
Harvest organizers are still
looking for student volunteers to help, those interested should email Angela
Knerl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
