Olive Morris and Olive Gachara

Olive (Olea europaea subspecies africana) is a dense shrub or small tree with scaly leaves, a crooked trunk, whitish flowers that produce black fruit, as well as oil that provides valuable food and medicinal compounds.

Australian and Hawaii likely became invaded with invasive plants during the 19th century (Cuneo & Leishman 2006). Previous genetic characterization using both nuclear and plastid markers have identified potential sources for their invasion.

Early Life and Education

Olive Morris was born in Jamaica and moved with her family as part of the Windrush generation to Britain, eventually becoming an activist focused on black rights, feminism and squatters’ rights.

She quickly earned acclaim for her culinary skills and remains a tourist draw today in Istanbul at her family restaurant. President Lyndon B. Johnson honored her with the Medal of Honor after she grabbed an explosive from an enemy soldier and took the brunt of its blast onto her own body to absorb.

African olive is a densely-branched evergreen shrub or small tree with rough, light or dark grey bark that invades bushland and shades out native plants. It can resemble several native species, particularly Notelaea venosa (scaly leaved mock olive) and Olea europaea subspecies europaea (feral olive). Olives are round purple-black fruit bearing one seed covered with oil glands – perfect for spreading their dominance across bushland!

Professional Career

Cheese, wine and bread are essential components of an enjoyable culinary experience shared among friends – particularly when drizzled with high-grade extra virgin olive oil from around the globe. Yet how often do we take time to reflect upon its source or even its terroir?

Much like wine-making, olive oil production is traditionally male-dominated industry. Yet women have made strides in Tunisia’s developing olive-oil industry despite this male dominance, such as Hajabdallah who quit her government job to run her own olive farm in rural Governorate of Zaghouan and plant Chetoui varieties that resist Tunisia’s high temperatures surrounded by fields of durum wheat for semolina production for use in making couscous.

Achievement and Honors

South Africa’s Mediterranean-like climate facilitates olive tree growth and production. South Africa also boasts an expanding olive oil industry; winning 10 awards at the 2022 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition is a record achievement among sub-Saharan African producers.

Rob Still from De Rustica Olive Estate and trained accountant from Wits University has won the coveted “Absolute Best Olive Oil” medal at this year’s EVOOLEUM Awards competition – marking only the second time an olive oil produced outside Spain or Italy had ever won this honor in history! His Coratina beat out all 999 other entries. Rob said this victory marked “an outstanding achievement not only for De Rustica and South African olive oil producers but for global producers alike as it shows they can produce high-quality EVOO.”

Personal Life

Olive is the fruit of an evergreen tree (Olea europaea), commonly found in salads and used in cooking. Olives belong to the same group as apricots, peaches, figs and almonds in terms of classification as drupes.

Over her seven years as a governess, she wrote two novels and started work on another that explored various views regarding women, freedom, and religion; during this period, she also abandoned formal religion for freethinking practices.

Schreiner married Samuel Cronwright-Schreiner in 1894 while continuing to write. Unfortunately she became ill during this period and passed away in 1920 at Cradock Cemetery; posthumous publication was then done of her work which could then be found both there as well as South African Libraries Special Collections Special Collections for preservation.

Net Worth

Olive Gachara, a Kenyan entrepreneur who owns assets including a luxury car. Additionally, she has done fashion editorials for magazines like Kenya Yetu, African Woman and mSafiri magazines.

Nuclear microsatellites were utilized to characterize 11 invasive populations from Australia and Hawaii and compare them with an expected source gene pool from Cape Town location and 68 Mediterranean olive cultivars. Structure analysis revealed two distinct clusters. Cluster E corresponds with South Australian populations from Lonsdale, Shepherds Hill and Brownhill Creek in South Australia (subspecies europaea); while Cluster C includes individuals from NSW such as Bringelly, Luddenham Maitland Park Harpers Hill in NSW (subspecies cuspidata). Chloroplast lineages from Sydney area olive invasive populations match both clusters except three isolates found on Mount Annan (2, 8, 17 and 21) suggesting hybridization with Mediterranean cultivars.
