The olive tree is a symbol of peace — and there is no better place to find one (from a choice of many varieties that grow well here) than the nursery at Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard.
Sandy Oaks, a 25-minute-drive from downtown San Antonio (I-37 to Hardy Road exit) to Elmendorf, will be open Saturday until 2 p.m. offering trees as well as olives, olive oil and olive products at the new gift shop.
For extra good luck, try some of chef Cathy Tarasovic’s black-eyed peas. And, pick up some of Sandy Oaks’ special, fair-trade coffee blend for a good start to the new year.
