We Love Winter
WE LOVE WINTER
At Comvita, we love winter. The cool clear days with winter sun shining down – it’s a wonderful time to take life a bit slower. Our olive grove in Queensland is a picture of serenity in winter as our olive trees rest in preparation for their main shooting and flowering in spring.
Not everyone likes to slow down in winter, and it’s especially important to make sure our immune systems are well supported to get us through the winter months. Taking care of our wellbeing in winter means we can enjoy our favourite things and make the most of this wonderful season.
We asked the Comvita Australia team to share what excites them about winter. Here are some of the things our team loves about winter .. we hope you feel inspired.
