We’ve created a space up on our hill for our families, students, parents, teachers, artisans, and any nature lover in general to engage as environmental activists on sacred heritage land in Palestine. We hold weekly workshops, summer day camps, overnight trips, school field trips, and open accessibility for all visitors. We know skilled professionals that hold lectures and workshops, professors from Bir Zeit University, local craftspeople, leaders of other eco-building organizations in the area (like the creator of a permaculture farm near Nablus, coming to teach about grey water). The infrastructure that we convene around is designed to be run off alternative energy—solar panels, wind energy, and recycled water. This alternative capability is meant to convey to our community how their homes can also be transformed into green spaces. Mashjar Juthour has just started its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com – please visit if you’d like to learn more or contribute.
