DEAR NEW FARM:
I would like to inform you about new Palestinian organization working
in organic farming: Safe Agriculture Producers Society (SAPS). Our
main goal is to encourage organic farming in Palestine society.
SAPS was first born in Palestine in 2001; the main objective was
to adopt safe agricultural systems such as agro-ecological agriculture,
IPM and permaculture (with special concentration on organic agriculture
as the most safe agricultural system) and start to work in cooperation
with other NGOs, especially Palestinian Agriculture Relief Center
and Arabic Center for Agriculture Development (ACAD).
SAPS shares in a lot of activities such as training, workshops,
an urban agriculture program and relief activities oriented to support
the farmers in particular and rural society in general. In 2003,
SAPS was recognized as a charity society, received its license,
and participated in the IFOAM conference held in Canada. A key priority
of SAPS is to establish a whole organic agriculture approach, including
training, extension, producing, processing and marketing. For more
information, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org,
With my best regards,
