Um Hamza leads the other farmers in her village with a vision of organic agriculture

The Peacemaking Mission Team is offering Palestinian fair trade olive products during coffee hour on December 4. Be sure to come and check out our olive oil, tapenade, and tomato caper spread from One World Goods.

We expect to have a good supply of the ever-popular infused olive oils and other products, great for gift giving!

Our goal is to raise awareness, not to raise funds: all items will be sold at cost to benefit the farmers of the Canaan Fair Trade Association in the West Bank. The Canaan Fair Trade website publishes the profiles for many of the producers of its products, including Um Hamza, who lives near Nablus in the West Bank.

The only woman farmer in her coop, Um Hamza is a woman of conviction who leads the other farmers in her village with vision and commitment to organic agriculture.  You can read about Um Hamza and the other fair trade producers here.
