At Caltech's recent Olive Oil Festival volunteers picked olives from the campus's 130 olive trees, most of which were sent to the Santa Barbara Olive Company for pressing. The remaining olives were crushed on campus using a human-powered device invented by Ricky Jones and Dvin Adalian, the students who garnered attention for pressing oil from the school's olives last year.
Tableau Vivante took photos of the festival, including the crushing machine, accompanying olive-centric dinner, and freshly picked olives. Check out more photos in the accompanying flickr set. [via Tastespotting]
