CANAAN

PALESTINE
 

 
   
   

Canaan is currently working with around 300 farmers managing more than 5,000 dunums (1,250 acres) with excess of 150,000 trees. These family plots are directly owned and operated by small-scale farmers who rely mainly on rain water for irrigation and use traditional farming in conjunction with new science-backed practices to ensure the quality of their crops. Canaan has been an active supporter for these farmers by providing ongoing, year-round technical support and guidance on best practices. 

 

Canaan has also been providing existing and new farmers with free saplings to expand the planted area, with a target of adding another 5,000 dunums by the year 2020.

As part of Canaan’s commitment to organic farming, we’ve been working with farmers to help them convert to organic. As a result, 31% of the almond farmers have converted, and we expect this ratio to keep rising as we intensify our efforts in the next three years.
