    Description

    My name is Božo, im born and raised in Zadar and im living here now. I have a small olive farm and produce olive oil. I have Masters degree in Agriculture and love doing anything related to agriculture, nature and outdoors.
    I have few small properties with olives and some lavander, the one where me and volunteers will be staying is just on the outskirts of the city of Zadar. Other farms are in Zadar area, as also on one island in Zadar archipelago, where i have olive trees that are more than few hundred years old.
    In total i have around 750 olive trees on around 8 different locations.

    I also compete with my oil and we are in the Flos Olei guide of top 500 olive oils in the world, 4 years in a row.
    Im also starting with making table olives, diferent varieties and different recipes.

    ASAP - im looking for someone to join me while cutting grass and preparing few hundred year old olive trees for harvest on island Iž.
    I plan to stay there around 10 days.
    We will be in a house with a/c, but without wifi. I can share my data on wifi, if you need.
    I need help with olive harvest that starts from mid October and it lasts about 10 days. We dont pick them every day, it depends on the weather conditions.
    We pick olives by hand and my family also join for the harvest.

    In Zadar we will be on the farm just on the outskirts of the city, about 40min walking to the center.
    Sleeping is in the tent. I have one big tent for 4 people and sleeping mats, so you just need to bring sleeping bag.
    When we will do harvest on the island of Iž, we will be staying in the house.
