In its efforts to contribute to the documentation and knowledge production in the field of food sovereignty, Dalia Association and Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Palestine & Jordan bring you this compendium of articles about Palestinian local/heirloom seeds, their relation to our identity and culture, and their centrality in achieving food sovereignty through the visions of the authors and their relationship with the land, agriculture, and authentic local food, and through illustrations that shed light on the issues addressed in the articles.
We would like to thank the contributors in this release, Saad Dagher, Khadija Abu Madi, Omar Assi, and Nadia Hasan Mustafa. We would also like to thank the committee who selected the articles, Abbi Aboudi and Mu’ayad Bisharat, who offered their time and effort to contribute to the selection process with Dalia’s team. Finally, we would like to thank artist Michael Jabareen who was able to translate the content and spirit of the articles into expressive artwork.
