Come spring time, the fields and hills of Higher Shouf and the West Bekaa villages burst with  green abundance after months of being submerged in snow.

Nabila Azzam WEP collection

Nabila, from Ein Zebde, will teach you everything about WEP

This is the time to experience  how generous Mother Earth is, and to hit the fields collecting wild edible plants and learn all about their health and medicinal benefits from the traditional knowledge of women and shepherds living in those villages.
