Olivami is the first nonprofit association established to reforest the Salento area, help local farmers and encourage the revival of organic EVO oil production.
We carry out all activities in total transparency with the aim of preserving the Salento landscape, protecting the environment, supporting people and supporting the local and national economy. We therefore carry out totally Green activities that support the achievement of international sustainable goals.
The planting of new trees, in our case olive trees, is one of the most environmentally friendly CO2 mitigation and offsetting measures.
Olivami's main goals
Agenda 2030: which of these goals do we focus on?
The program was formed to empower future generations to be able to experience a better and more sustainable world from 3 main perspectives: <strong>environmental, social and economic</strong>.
Our project supports 7 of the goals set by the 2030 Agenda:
How do we achieve these goals?
With innovative and sustainable technologies
We use AGRICULTURE 4.0 tools , such as multispectral drones and water sensors.
Through precision agriculture techniques(multispectral drones), we are able to intervene in a targeted and preventive manner in cases of new pathogen outbreaks, avoiding “blanket” treatments, as well as monitor the health status of plants. All this at ZERO IMPACT.
We also make use of water sensors that can estimate the water needs of individual olive trees, so as to avoid water waste and resource consumption. Thanks to these sensors, we water plants only when there is anactual need.
With maximum transparency
We are especially keen to share with you every achievement and milestone we reach, because everything we have done so far is also thanks to your help.
We also guarantee all adopters the opportunity to visit the olive groves and see their own olive tree.
For us, “transparency” means making you a part of every activity: in fact, we have organized event days such as “Collect Me” and “Olivami Day” to demonstrate how we are really investing the funds raised through our adoptions.
With the help of experts
We approached agronomists and agricultural entrepreneurs from the outset to assess the feasibility of the initiative and its real utility for people, the environment, and the land.
The farmers who plant and conduct the olive trees do their work with the utmost care. They use state-of-the-art and sustainable means and tools to ensure an organic and quality EVO oil.

How does Olivami work?
Olivami is a non-profit association (Olivami ETS – CF 93160150756) which brings together various farms in the province of Lecce. The headquarters are in Martano, in the heart of the so-called Grecìa Salentina , a set of municipalities where the traditions of the ancient Greek culture are still alive, which had a very strong symbol in the Olive tree.
The goals of OlivaMi
Our association’s goal is to revive Salento, which was destroyed by Xylella, by allowing everyone to adopt an olive tree. By adopting one or more olive trees, you will help our farmers plant and conduct small, bacteria-tolerant olive trees, contribute to the resumption of production of organic, 100% Salento EVO oil, and contribute to the absorption of CO2 emissions.
