Namlieh || Garden Show || 28 May – 1 June 2013

Saturday, June 1, 2013

Namlieh Marketing Cooperative participated for the sixth time running in the annual Garden Show and Spring Festival which was held in its tenth edition from 28 May to 1 June at the Beirut Hippodrome and bore the slogan "Water is the Source of Life".
Namlieh exhibited the traditional food products manufactured by the rural women cooperatives and groups and visitors got to see and taste a variety of jams, pickles, herbs, spices, and grains.  Visitors were also exposed to the ways in which rural women cooperatives and groups work within their own rural contexts.
Some 250 exhibitors took part in this year's Garden Show which spread over 20000 square meters and hosted some 20000 visitors from Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and other Arab countries.  The event was covered by the main media outlets of Lebanon which provided Namlieh and the associated rural women groups and coops with an important media visibility.
This participation was within the framework of CRTD.A's Regional Economic Empowerment for Women Programme which is funded by Canadian International Development Agency and administered by Oxfam Quebec.
