July 4, 2017

Marda Dunsky wrote an essay on Canaan Palestine called "Made in Palestine" for The Cairo Review of Global Affairs

"Expansion of Israeli settlements, restriction on access to water, and land confiscation are displacing Palestinians from agricultural livelihoods they have known for centuries. But olive tree growers and backyard gardeners are refusing to surrender their heritage. This is a story of farmers under occupation." To read the entire essay CLICK HERE.

Growing A New Business On The West Bank

January 7, 2017

Canaan Palestine was featured in U.S. News and World Report in an article headlined: "Growing a New Business in the West Bank." Here is a sample: 

JENIN, West Bank — Fares Hussein and his family have been farming olive trees in Burqin, a Palestinian village in the northern West Bank, for more generations than he can count. But today it's organic farming – the techniques of his ancestors with a modernized twist – that keeps his land sustainable throughout rocky times.

Hussein is part of a growing cadre of more than a thousand farmers in the Palestinian territories who have switched to organic farming, a practice that avoids the use of chemicals. Palestinian farmers face many obstacles – from restrictions on movement and water usage under Israeli military occupation to limited rainfall and changing temperatures – but the international organic market is proving a markedly profitable high-end outlet.

Jonathan Cook on Canaan Palestine in AMEU's The Link

September 1, 2016

Award-winning British journalist Jonathan Cook wrote an outstanding article profiling Canaan Palestine's model of self-sufficiency and dignity. Cook writes that Canaan "now assists some 2,000 small-hold farmers in the West Bank. It offers them help to grow organic crops that can withstand water shortages and other privations of a hostile occupation; buys their products at above-market prices to ensure farming families can make a sustainable living; and finds local and foreign markets for the produce, as a way to bypass Israeli control and to raise prices. Staff have nick-named their approach `agro-resistance.'" Cook, a master of long-form journalism, is based in Nazareth, Israel. This article ran on a number of news services but came out first in the newsletter of Americans for Middle East Understanding (AMEU). Read the full story at The Link.
