Al-Auja Environment Centre, Jordan Valley/Jericho

In January 2011 the Friends of the Earth – Middle East environment centre at Al-Auja, just north of the Jericho in the Jordan Valley, opened its new guesthouse. It has private single, double and triple en-suite rooms as well as single-sex dormitories. There are also plans to add self-contained houses, built in the local mudbrick style. Alongside accommodation and food, the Al-Auja guesthouse offers classes in Palestinian cookery and handicrafts, bicycle hire and hikes in the Jordan Valley concentrating on the area’s biodiversity and history. All proceeds from the guesthouse are returned to the community in Al-Auja.
