By Larissa Jackson: 

Sara Cimetta ieiMedia student experienced the lifestyle of a community at first hand when she visited an olive farm in a small village called Piène-Haute.  She was able to talk with community members and get a true feel for the people that live there.  During the visit she was able to take part in Fête de L’eté which was the celebration of the community and the traditions they take part in.  Cimetta learned of the process one must go through in growing organic olives and much more during her visit.
