The Olive Route
Carol’s fascination with the olive tree extended to a solo seventeen-month Mediterranean sojourn in search of its mythical secrets. The resulting travel books, The Olive Route and The Olive Tree, have inspired a recently completed five-part documentary film series entitled The Olive Route. Carol has also been invited to work with UNESCO to help found an Olive Heritage Trail around the Mediterranean Basin, with the dual goals of creating peace in the region and honoring the ancient heritage of the olive tree.
Join us for a lecture by Carol that will transport us along her journey of discovering the rich history and culture of the olive tree. The lecture will be followed by an olive oil tasting led by olive oil professional taster, teacher, researcher Alexandra Devarenne.
