Welcome Back Souk in AUB

Welcome back souk.sept 14

The Environment and Sustainable Development Unit ESDU and the Food Heritage Foundation are re-launching its monthly Farmers’ Market for the new academic year 2014-2015!

Join us on Monday September 8 (11:00 am – 5:00 pm) and Tuesday September 9 (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) for a “Welcome Back Souk!” in FAFS – AUB proposing a variety of fresh, organic and local products.

The market will also feature a special corner promoting handcraft carpets from Arsali women. This special participation of the COOP Association from Aarsal is in collaboration with OTI (Office of Transition Initiatives), and part of a project supported by USAID aiming at enhancing the income-generating potential of women living in remote areas witnessing economic constraints and security challenges caused by the Syrian crisis.
