Palestine is distinguished by the abundance of its flora both indigenous and transplanted. The local Palestinian landscape is characterised by a natural landscape, and a cultural landscape, shaped by horticultural practices.

Join us on an adventurous and curiosity-piquing tour, during which you will see aromatic and medicinal plants and traditional legumes and cereal crops surrounded by wild fruit trees. At the end of the tour, we will enjoy a bowl of warm lentil soup.
