Programme

Olives have been cultivated in southern Europe for thousands of years. The olive tree’s resilience and adaptability to diverse soil and climate conditions make it an important cash crop, sustaining rural communities and livelihoods across the continent.

oLIVE CLIMA is working to enhance the olive tree’s contribution to climate change adaptation and mitigation, as part of the EU’s wider efforts to reduce carbon emissions from agriculture and encourage more sustainable farming methods. The project aims to develop methods to increase carbon storage in the soil of olive plantations and to enhance the quantity and quality of organic matter in the soil to reduce the need for organic fertilisers.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
