A Concrete Help

By adopting an olive tree you concretely help olive growers to return to the Salento countryside , devastated by Xylella. We can inject strength and confidence into their hearts, helping them and their surroundings as well. The new olive trees will in fact contribute to the absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere : each olive tree absorbs about 600 kg of CO2 every year! And millions of them have disappeared throughout Puglia ...

A tree is forever

Adopting an olive tree means leaving your mark on Salento forever! Olive trees can survive over the centuries, leading the generations who live in their territory. When you adopt an olive tree on Olivami, you can assign a name to your tree , which will be engraved on a plate hanging from the tree itself. Weatherproof, this plate and the olive tree itself will be witnesses of your help in Salento, over the centuries.

The Olivami Project

Negli ultimi 5 anni la Xylella ha distrutto oltre 21 milioni di ulivi nel Salento, lasciando circa 5.000 agricoltori senza lavoro e cancellando la principale fonte di compensazione di CO2 del Salento.

L’Associazione Olivami promuove l’adozione degli ulivi Salentini come risposta alla devastazione portata dalla Xyella. Una nuova forma di olivicoltura sostenibile e partecipativa, che consente a chiunque di adottare a distanza uno o più olivi Salentini, sostenendo la riforestazione di questo meraviglioso territorio.

Adopt an Olive Tree: Frequently Asked Questions

Is the adoption fee single or annual?

La quota di adozione è ANNUALE, ma potrai decidere di rinnovare l’adozione al momento della scadenza.

Il rinnovo avviene in modo manuale. Ti avvertiremo della scadenza circa una decina di giorni prima, tramite un’e-mail.

What name can I give to my tree?

You can name it however you like: with your name, the name of a loved one, a fancy name, the name of a place or what it symbolizes for you (happiness, freedom, peace, etc.).

If you adopt more than one olive tree, you may decide to assign a single name to the entire olive grove or one name for each tree, dividing them with a comma or hyphen.

When it comes to a gift usually the adopted tree is assigned the recipient’s name or nickname.

The name of the olive tree will appear on the adoption certificate and on the plaque hanging on the tree, along with the first and last name of the person who adopted it or who will receive it as a gift.

When will I receive the oil?

La spedizione dell’olio avverrà indicativamente nel periodo di raccolta, ossia da ottobre a dicembre, ma se hai bisogno di averlo subito possiamo spedirlo anche prima. Sarà sufficiente mandarci una mail al seguente indirizzo: [email protected].

Confezioneremo il tuo olio in modo accurato e sicuro, per far arrivare il prodotto in ottime condizioni.

What am I entitled to for each adoption?

A seconda dal piano di adozione che sceglierai (Basic, Silver, Gold, Platinum) riceverai una certa quantità di olio EVO Biologico, che varierà negli anni seguenti.

Nel piano Basic, ad esempio, ti spediremo 1 litro di olio per i primi 3 anni, mentre per i successivi due anni avrai diritto a 1,5 litri di olio, per arrivare fino a 2 litri per ogni ulivo superati i primi 6 anni.

È possibile, inoltre, aggiungere litri di olio a quelli già presenti nel piano base: basta selezionare la quantità, che si sommerà a quelli già previsti.

Al momento dell’adozione ti invieremo un certificato riportante il tuo nome e la località del tuo albero (in modo da poterli andare a trovare quando desideri).

Where are my olive trees planted?

The new Olive Trees are being planted in the province of Lecce, in the area of Carpignano Salentino, Martano, Borgagne, and Melendugno, where several farms operate that have joined the Olivami initiative.

Can I give one or more olive trees as a gift?

Certo. È possibile regalare uno o più ulivi. Basterà selezionare, nella scheda del piano, l’opzione “è un regalo“.

A quel punto potrai inserire nome e cognome del destinatario, indicare il suo indirizzo e-mail (così che possa ricevere la comunicazione del regalo), un messaggio personalizzato, e la data di consegna del regalo.
