“Planting futures in Palestine” design card to acknowledge your gift of sponsoring an organic olive tree sapling in Palestine, where olive trees and their harvest provide the livelihood for entire communities.
The new trees go some way towards counteracting the destruction wrought in Palestinian olive groves by the Israeli army and settlers. Settlement and settlement road building and the construction of the Separation Wall have seen hundreds of thousands of trees bulldozed and cut down. According to Applied research Institute Jerusalem, over 500,000 olive trees have been destroyed since 2000. Each new tree sponsored represents a long-term source of income for Palestinian families, who have been harvesting olive oil, fruit and wood for generations.
The trees are distributed in Palestine by the Palestinian Fair Trade Association (PFTA) to farmers who follow fair trade guidelines and who will benefit from future purchases of Palestinian olive oil.
