Palestinian seed library salvages agricultural heritage from Israeli occupation

28-04-2016

160428-seed-library.jpgLight green almonds - still unripe - dot a giant old tree on one of the few terraced plots left in Beit Jala, near Bethlehem. “I call this tree Karima, the generous one because it gives so much," says Vivien Sansour as she reaches up into the trees branches and holds the crop between her fingers. Trees like this have increasingly come under threat because of the Israeli occupation, with water supplies restricted to Palestinian farms and settlement building encroaching on traditional agricultural plots. In response, Ms Sansour, a Palestinian agriculturalist, has spent the last year collecting seed varieties used for generations by Palestinian farmers with the aim of preserving them.
