Land of Palestine

​​To a Palestinian the land of Palestine flows through their blood. It is not for the loss of Palestine that this is the case, it was for centuries this connection as the people embraced the soil, the plants, the environment and made it their life.


Za'atar, an herb abundant in Palestine along with the olive and orange trees growing in Northern Palestine and Jafa respectively have become symbols for Palestinian heritage.


Thousands of years later, Palestinians all over Palestine, Gaza and Israel continue to farm and grow a variety of crops that still today embrace techniques related to farming that are passed from family member to family member.
