Bellucci Premium responds to the efforts of students at the University of Arizona (UA) to make olive oil from olive trees located on campus.
According to the Daily Wildcat article published on November 12th titled UA community harvests campus olive trees to make olive oil, students helped gather olives from trees located on the UA campus on Veterans Day, November 11th.
The article shares how the UA Green Fund, Linking Edible Arizona Forests (LEAF), supported the harvest of the trees. 27 trees, consisting of Mission and European olives, were harvested. This is the first time that olives have been harvested on campus. The organization will reinvest any money made from sales of the oil back into the project. Were trying to find a way to support the olive harvest in the longer term without having to go to the Green Fund for every penny, said Melanie Lenart, the project manager of LEAF.
