    Event description

    OLIVES TO OIL 2024

    Presented in partnership with The Corner Store Network, Olives to Oil is an annual event run by CERES, bringing people together to harvest olives and have them pressed communally into delicious, local olive oil.

    In 2024 the 'Southside' program will run without any external funding support and there will therefore be some changes to the program - please read the details carefully even if you have participated before. In the event that insufficient tickets are sold, the program may not go ahead. All tickets will be refunded in this instance and notice given ahead of harvesting time. 

    Tickets are essential to take part, we won’t be able to accept olives which aren’t planned for this year. 

    When booking you'll be asked to select a weight category you expect to pick and there will be a ticket charge to cover the pressing and transport costs. Book a time, depending on your planned harvest weight, to bring your olives to The Corner Store Network, 30 Hamilton St, Oakleigh on:

    Sunday 26th May 12pm-3pm

    OIL PICK UP

    Olive Oil will be available to collect from The Corner Store Network from Saturday 22nd June and must be collected no later than Saturday 29th June.

    10% of the oil will be retained by The Corner Store network to support the program. 

    TERMS AND CONDITIONS

    By booking a ticket you agree to the following Terms and Conditions:

    1. I understand that it is my responsibility to collect the olive oil by Saturday 29th June. If I am away or unwell I will arrange a friend or family member to collect it. I accept that there will not be other opportunities and agree that my oil may be sold to support the program if it is not collected on the pick-up day.
    2. I understand that before the olive drop off day, if I have harvested more or less olives than expected I am able to cancel and rebook (via Humanitix) if tickets of the correct weight are available. I accept that no ticket fees can be refunded if tickets of the correct weight are unavailable and no ticket fees will be refunded on or after olive drop off day.
    3. I understand that if I have picked more olives than my ticket capacity I can choose to wait until the end of the event and these may be accepted if there is capacity. Olives to Oil cannot accept olives beyond our capacity and no responsibility will be taken for excess olives.
    4. I understand that my olives need to be picked just before the event (not more than two days in advance) and cannot be accepted if they are visibly bruised, mouldy or spoiled. 
    5. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to ensure my registered contact details are correct. If I have not received a confirmation email or updates it is my responsibility to check my spam folder then contact Olives to Oil. I will stay up to date with Olives to Oil updates.
