Date Season coming up in the Valley of Peace

Date season is nearing in Peace Wadi, and we are all busy preparing the fields. Here are the three volunteers, Mira from Finland, Min from Greece and Pierre from France. We have been eating the frozen dates from last season nonstop. None of us could believe how good these were and how they melted in your mouth. There are so many dates, and a wide variety is cultivated here.19225299_10155523721859009_6044176568142257971_n.jpg

Currently the dates are still green hanging in bunches from the palm trees. But don’t worry every day we make sure to test them out. Mohammed said the dates won’t be ready for picking until mid-July or early August.

Seeing as last season they are so delicious frozen, imagine how good they will be in 6 weeks? Fresh off the palms, and ready for eating.

Come get your dates and if you want to volunteer let us know!
