Workshop on thyme growing in Labaya/Beqaa


In cooperation with the Jihad al Binaa Development Association, the Agricultural Cooperative of the Beqaa town of Labaya and Labaya municipality organized yesterday an extension workshop on ‘thyme cultivation’. The course was presented by agriculture engineer Ahmad Issa with the participation of a number of local farmers who learned about the basics and proper care methods for the growing of thyme. During the workshop, the Cooperative president pressed the need for an increased government backing to the agriculture sector which constitutes an essential source of the livelihoods for a large number of Beqaa households. The Government, he said, should extend all forms of support to strengthen farmers’ steadfastness to their land. He also drew attention to the Cooperative’s active role in sustaining agriculture in the town, through spreading the culture of awareness or through provision of required machinery, seedlings or fertilizers for farmers. At the end of the course, thousands of thyme seedlings were distributed among beneficiaries. (Al Diyar, April 12, 2017)
