Since a young age, I have helped my father in beekeeping which later turned into a passion. I studied beekeeping and afterward wrote the official book on “Beekeeping and Honey Production” for the Department of Agricultural Education at the Ministry of Agriculture.
When agro-tourism and cultural tourism started to develop in Lebanon, I was inspired to introduce the wonderful world of bees and the benefits of honey. While wearing a bee-keeper outfit, you get an up-close view of the bee colony and then taste the raw honey and pollen directly from the bee hives.
Also, I have directed a series of workshops on “Agricultural Heritage and Homemade Products - Mouneh” remembering and preparing ancient, preservatives-free recipes.
Living in Mristi, managing my organic land, I invite you to come to pick fruits and vegetables to purchase and take home. It’s a u-pick experience in a clean urban environment.
As a rural guide with the LMT (Lebanese Mountain Trail), hiking has become more than a hobby. This trail is the home of unique natural and cultural heritage. You can see old bridges, ruins, traditional mills, and grapes presses.
All of this, is how you experience “Integrated Agricultural Eco-Tourism.”
