Kavadias

Amidst the current national economic crisis, Greeks who predict the end of the olive industry redouble their commitment to growing olives on family-owned lands, incurring personal debts and spurring relatives in Athens to migrate ‘back’ home to labor in the groves. These investments and commitments suggest that, for Greeks, olive cultivation resonates beyond just the monetary, but is getting mobilized in culturally meaningful ways in the turmoil.
