The Olive Harvest

The Olive Harvest

Join International Women’s Peace Service (IWPS) in Palestine this autumn!

The months of October/November mark the harvest season for olives in Palestine.

Whole families take to the fields to bring in the fruit that is the backbone of the Palestinian economy, as well as a symbol of Palestinian culture and rootedness to their land. It should be the most joyous time of the year, but many farmers struggle or even risk their lives to merely reach their own olive trees behind the Apartheid Wall and close to illegal Israeli settlements.

The International Women‘s Peace Service (IWPS) provides a protective presence of international female volunteers to support Palestinian farming communities in this vital but dangerous time. This year we are hoping to recruit more volunteers.
