The picking of the olives


  •   23/11/2015

Wonderful Sunday we spent hanging out with the employs  of ALPHA BANK. Along with families and  children gathered in the open space of Philodassiki Union Athens behind the Kaisariani Monastery. Through an entertaining group play, the children have found evidence for the olive and care.

Then we moved to the "History Eleonas" Aesthetic Forest of Hymettus, where with nets, rakes, sticks, and with  hands, gathered olives for the harvest of this winter!

The donkey of Philodassiki helped us to transport the olives to the warehouse, from where would later take the road to the mill.

 Beneath the long, bushy olive kids listened our most famous legend about the olive and Athens, while closing the game, young and old enjoyed olives, nuts and aromatic oil!

Thank you very ALPHA BANK for beautiful experiences and unforgettable moments that we offer through educational and cultural programs.
