Olive Harvest in Palestine (October 19th - October 27th 2019)

category international | anti-war / imperialism | event notice author Tuesday April 23, 2019 23:09author by Paul Report this post to the editors

The olive harvest time in Palestine is a wonderful time for a visit.

The olive harvest time in Palestine is a wonderful time for a visit. The trees are full of ripe olives and in solidarity with the Palestinian land owners we will be part of this traditional experience. You can either climb a tree or work down on the ground. We collect the olives on the tarps and then in buckets and bags. We will have traditional Palestinian lunch on the fields and we will visit an olive press. Besides volunteering on the land you will have the chance to discover Palestine and travel around with your guide Baha, to understand the reality of the geo-political situation. There are excursions to Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Lifta, Hebron and the South Hebron hills, Ramallah (the Arafat Museum) and Nabi Saleh.

The olive harvest season that was once a safe and joyful time has become a stark reminder of the reality of the occupation, land theft and destruction which the people of Palestine face every day.
