At each stage of history, the olive tree became the most important component of all civilizations established in Anatolia. The mainland of the olive is the Southeast Anatolia however, in the course of time it has been extended to the world through the Mediterranean shores initially to Asia and then to the Americas.
It is said that the olive tree is the first of the trees in any sort that are being cultivated in the world. The olive is also mentioned in the holy books as the crop of many myths.
My friend Bettina is now in Datça, working at an olive farm and guesthouse where no chemical products or fertilizers are used in the cultivation of organic olives.
