Rich Glen Excursion

Our Year 9/10 From the Ground Up agricultural elective visited Rich Glen Olive Estate near Yarrawonga.

Damien and Ros were kind enough to show us the processing plant and orchard and spoke to us about how they grow, harvest and process their olives.

Students learnt about fertilizers, pests and diseases, soil types best suited to olive growing, and business decisions and value adding to products.

Thanks to all for a fantastic morning!
