Our favorite eco-organization EcoPeace Middle East are arranging a full moon hike in the West Bank this week with a local center, the Auja EcoCenter which offers tried and true alternatives for better living in desert climates.
Auja has been the focus of a number of stories we have covered here on Green Prophet, namely because the village has agreed to pilot a number of solutions that can greatly improve the welfare of people in Palestinian Territories, but also in Syria, Jordan, Israel and anywhere where the sun is plentiful and water is scarce. See pictures below of some projects ongoing there.
Want to get educated on the Middle East eco issues and be part of something bigger than yourself? Join EcoPeace Middle East and Auja EcoCenter for a Full Moon Hike and Bedouin dinner this Friday, September 16th. The hike is 3 hours long, and it’s at Beginner’s level. Cost is $25 and it includes an authentic Bedouin dinner. Expect to be spoiled by a rich experience and good people.
Auja is a short drive from Jerusalem. And is accessible from Jordan via the Allenby Crossing. Guests can stay overnight for an additional $25, and the cost includes bed and breakfast.
