Cocoon planting technology for the first time in Palestine: video
For decennia, Palestine has suffered from severe water shortages due to limited rainfall, the political situation and restrictions on natural water resources.
To reforest land damaged by war and water shortages, Fanack, Land Life Company (LLC) and the Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) came together in 2016 to bring the innovative COCOON planting technology to Palestine.
In the year ahead Fanack and LLC will plant 3,000 productive and non-productive trees in Kefar Sava with various forestry species. Similar small scale plantings will be implemented in 20 agricultural schools along the demarcation line.
We will work with the Palestine Institute of Biodiversity and Sustainability (Palestine Museum of Natural History – Bethlehem University) and plant Cocoons in the Bethlehem region to teach students and agriculture professionals about this new water-saving reforestation tool.
