The UC Davis Olive Center has created an olive oil educational series in a specific order for the participants to get the most out of it. Starting with the Sensory Evaluation, to deeply understand the final product being made, followed by the Growing course in which the participant can learn the tools to make the right decision before even planting any trees and finisching with the Master Milling for producers that have facilities to mill their own oil.
For our out-of-town visitors, multiple accommodations are available and some provide discounted UC Davis event rates.
