Adopt an olive tree, save Salento.

In the last 5 years, Xylella has destroyed over 21 million olive trees in Salento , thus canceling years and years of sacrifices of thousands of Salento farmers and the main source of CO2 compensation in Salento.

With Olivami we want to promote the adoption of Salento olive trees as a response to the devastation brought about by Xyella. A new form of sustainable and participatory olive growing , which allows anyone to remotely adopt one or more Salento olive trees, supporting the reforestation of our territory, and obtaining an annual supply of EVO oil with certified origin and quality .

Help the farmers get back to the fields.

Adopt an olive tree, help us save Salento.

Adopt an olive tree in Salento and participate in the reconstruction of Salento. Choose how many olive trees to adopt and select the adoption plan that you prefer among those proposed below.

We talk about our association on:

1. To fight against Xylella

In the last 5 years, over 21 million olive trees have disappeared, destroyed by Xylella and over 5,000 olive growers have lost fields, jobs and traditions, reducing the production of Salento oil by 80%.

2. To reduce the environmental impact .

Over the past 5 years, the pollution rate has increased by 8% . Each hectare of olive trees removes 9.5 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere every year. That is about 730 Kg of CO2 per year for each olive tree.

3. To offer a true EVO oil

We want to return to offering our organic extra virgin olive oil , with verified quality and origin, produced with cutting-edge techniques that allow us to have zero environmental impact .
