Wafaa Issa, the manager of the women's co-operatives project in the camp, called to the proj New Arab “: lend The idea of a surface farming project was the idea of women's co-operatives working in jams and pickles. These pickles must have certain criteria. And we were looking for the source of the plant to ensure the safety of the crops, if the fruits were exposed to chemicals, the taste of the pickled pickles would not last long, so the idea of farming on the roof in plastic houses.
"This project was initiated by the El Karama Foundation in Palestine a decade ago and the project continued, especially for Facebook, to work on surfaces with plastic pipes covered by tents that I saw the project through, and to learn the business mechanism along with the Foundation." we agreed to come to Lebanon to educate women, but the occupation authorities did not allow them to travel. "
It follows that these cooperatives can overcome this obstacle and trust the internet for education. This idea was the idea that older women, especially Palestinians coming to Lebanon, were farmers, and that women were mostly sown in the land, and that this was an opportunity for women to reconnect with agriculture. "We have encountered a problem. The agriculture must be on the roof. The construction in the camp is steep. Especially since women need daily care, it is difficult for older women to climb stairs, so we have included men in the project to be four women and six men."
"We started the project with an active association, and in the first place, within the first three years, the tents are provided and owned by the association, so when the agricultural workers will be for the farmers, we will ensure the seriousness of the workers in the project."
Ina When we tried to install pipes, iron, plastic and tanks, we had to get a license from the Lebanese army's intelligence, and after it was set up and set up, we pulled them to make sure they were only for the tents. There is no doubt.
U We added 52 pipes, and one of the conditions of the tent would be facing east, and we installed seven pipes in each tent and seven seedlings in each pipe. “Taking a pipe requires a very careful and long research, as it may have been exposed to a large amount of chemical. The idea is that it can damage the soil and thus spread the insects and die. fik
The project is followed by agricultural engineer Amani Dagher, who trains women with herbs and how to deal with insects. "Pesticides cannot enter the project, and even the soil has specific properties, we don't use any animal manure before treatment, we don't put it in plastic containers," Issa said. The pipes have been in use for fifteen years and the earth has been serving for a full year but then we give it to the sun. And we dig them up and fertilize them with ventilation, then go back to use. "
Çeşit We have seeds from Ramallah that are not exposed to chemicals and we will grow them. S Our current production focuses on cucumbers, tomatoes, beans and strawberries, and we plant individual tents into a season, so we can control the spread of insects, all kinds of vegetables by insects of different species. is occupied.
