Welcome to Tent of Nations - An Educational and Environmental Farm
At Tent of Nations our mission is building bridges between people, and between people to the land. We bring different cultures together to develop understanding and promote respect for each other and our shared environment.
To realise this mission, we run educational projects at Daher’s Vineyard, our organic farm, located in the hills southwest of Bethlehem, Palestine. Our farm is a center where people from many different countries come together to learn, to share and to build bridges of understanding and hope.
What we do
We run a series of workcamps throughout the year which give us valuable support for the running of the farm and are a key part of our aim to help individuals to feel more connected to the land and our environment. See below for dates of this year’s workcamps.
We run empowerment programmes for women and children in the local area; by building confidence and capacity in those whose lives are made a daily struggle due to the situation facing Palestinians today, we can help create a better future for tomorrow. Find out about our Women’s Project and Children’s Summer Camps.
We welcome international volunteers on long and short term bases; giving individuals from around the world a unique opportunity to broaden their own personal development, while giving us invaluable support in developing our projects and keeping our farm going and growing. Find out about becoming a volunteer.
We welcome all manner of guests and groups to our farm and are proud to be able to provide a space for visitors to the West Bank to come to learn about our story, to witness active and peaceful resistance on the ground and find out more about the wider situation in Palestine. Visit Tent of Nations and check out the facilities that we offer.
