Fairtrade Fortnight 2021

February 8, 2021

Join us to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight with a live virtual producer event from Palestine! We’ll be talking to Haj Rafeeq, a farmer from the ancient village of Ti’innik, perched high on a terraced hill in Palestine’s West Bank. 

At 77 years old Haj Rafeeq carries a wealth of farming experience and still loves tending his olive and almond trees, along with annual wheat and sesame crops.  

It’s a full-time job, for which he draws on the inherited wisdom of his ancestors who have farmed the same land for over 200 years. This treasure trove of traditional knowledge is proving invaluable as he and fellow farmers face the challenges of adapting to climate change under an occupation that restricts access to land and water resources.  

Please sign up below to join us with Haj Rafeeq on Thursday 25th February at 12pm
