On Saturday 23rd October our Form 4 Prince’s Trust students met at Stella’s Garden Centre – BSS Ltd. Ta’ Gianpula – Zebbug https://www.facebook.com/stellagardencentre, where there, together, they picked olives and processed them to extract extra virgin olive oil.
At Stella’s Garden Centre, they were greeted by Mr. Bezzina. Mr.Bezzina gave them a brief historical overview of olives and olive oil. He explained the process of extracting oil from the olives and the benefits one can acquire from olive oil. The students found the process very interesting and appreciated more nature and what a small fruit like an olive can contribute. They also understood the entrepreneural aspect behind the process.
Many thanks to Mr. Bezzina and his staff for their dedication and patience to show the students around and the explanations.
