Soleri and the Cosanti staff rescued a fewof the trees and planted them at Cosanti. From those trees, Solerisuccessfully propagated hundreds of new ones to fill the landscapingneeds for Cosanti and Arcosanti. The October workshop spent a morning with the landscapingdepartment harvesting this years crop of rich black olives in the MindsGarden.

The next step will be to pierce the skinof each olive to help release the bitterness. The olives are soakedtwice in a salt brine for 2 – 3 month each. Then resident RandallSchultz takes over the rest of the process at his company ‘High DesertFarms’. High Desert Farms is located in Cordes Lakes and providesdelicious canned and dried goods to shops all over the country.
