Meet Us on the Abraham Path: Olive trees, olive oil, and coping with COVID
Olive trees have been cultivated in the Eastern Mediterranean for 6,000 to 8,000 years, surviving waves of conquest and inspiring varieties of fruits and oils. Canaan Palestine is a fair-trade project, sourcing from family farms organized in cooperative unions. Olives, almonds, and organic vegetables, with fair prices and fair wages are available for local and global markets. Karmel Abufarha of Canaan tells host Anisa Mehdi how they keep traditional food-growing viable while facing water shortages, military occupation, and the Coronavirus, and he’ll answer your questions.
