About Palestine Farm Project

Palestine Farm Project (PFP) seeks to expand cross-cultural unity and support economically, socially & ecologically sustainable development through West Bank farm-stays and skillshares as well as through a cottage-business incubator.

People from around the world can stay on family farms in the West Bank in exchange for help in the fields. Visitors and farmers work side-by-side, creating otherwise unattainable bonds between Palestinians and international visitors. Unlike conventional tourism which often excludes local populations, Palestine Farm Project uses the desire to travel and experience something new to help preserve traditional Palestinian (agri)cultural knowledge and promote equitable development in the agricultural sector.

Palestine Farm Project will also create a cultural center for villagers and international travelers to lead courses and learn language, music, cooking, art and more. PFP will have a certified incubator kitchen for Palestinians to create hand-made food products to market locally and abroad. This provides farmers and women with additional self-employment opportunities while preserving the production methods of traditional foods  and sharing them abroad.
