As part of UAWC’s campaign to promote the “Local Seed Bank”, SB has participated in “Nawar Nissan Festival”, which is hosted by the Ramallah Municipality each year, in addition to “Burqin Festival for Culture and Arts”.

These participations are intended to enhance the importance of local seeds in the Palestinian society. The participants were briefed about the significance of local seeds as part of the Palestinian heritage and identity, and that SB main objective is to conserve plant genetic resources from being lost specifically vegetables crops, which are characterized by being drought tolerant, adapted with their surrounding environment, produce early before the onset of drought, require little amounts of water and can be improved season after season through selection and reproduction.
