During the summer of 2014, environmentalists Muna Dajani and Lina Isma’il conducted research for an innovative Palestinian guidebook, which will soon be published by the Heinrich Boell Foundation’s Ramallah office. The authors visited farmers, artisans, and companies throughout Palestine, and wrote 100 profiles introducing their work. The result of their journey is a guidebook that invites its readers to get to know the people behind the products they buy, and to build and expand their own individual network of producers.
