Almond & Fruit harvest
Description: The Tent of Nations farm seeks to bring people of various cultures and countries together to build a bridge between people and land. The vision of The Tent of Nations is to prepare people to make a positive contribution to their future and society through the values of understanding and respect. This is to be achieved through education-awareness campaigns, youth empowerment, and work camps. The Tent of Nations Farm is located south west of Bethlehem near the village of Nahalin. This land is still under threat of confiscation and we are still in the Israeli courts defending the farm since 26 years without giving up. Still we believe in justice and our response to the unjust situation is in a nonviolent and creative way under the slogan "We refuse to be enemies".
Type of Work: August is the month of picking Almonds and apples. It is always useful to have more people sharing this significant time together with Tent of Nations, volunteers and other young people. Young people from different backgrounds will camp out for ten days, during their time there they will pick almonds and other fruits and also help in do the processing, like making jam out of the apple and other fruits. On some afternoons/evenings there will also be a special program prepared that includes: general details about the land situation, orientation, lectures, workshops, documentary movies and field trips to Bethlehem and the surroundings
