Palestine Heirloom Seed Library

The Library is working with West Bank farmers to conserve heirloom crops like the Jadu’i Watermelon, Habeh Soda Wheat, White Cucumber, and Baladi Tomato, all of which are Ba’al crops, planted at the end of the rainy season and grown without irrigation. The Library also works with West Bank farmers to promote soil regeneration and transform the ancient terrace farming system into a model for agroecological practices, and manages a Traveling Kitchen to encourage people to consume more heirloom food crops.
