Provide a source of income and sustenance.
In the Aleppo countryside, in a community absolutely gutted by war, people are learning something completely new: mushroom farming.
High in protein and packed with amino acids, mushrooms are cheap and relatively easy to grow, particularly in Syria’s intense climate.
It’s just a mushroom, but it’s so much more. It’s a living wage. It’s powerful, nutritious food that’s more than just calories. It’s a simple way to stabilize the food supply and reintroduce agriculture into the bombed-out, barren landscape. It might all come down to the mushroom and its tender, determined farmers. They might just prevent history from repeating itself.
Syria may look dark right now, with its decimated rubble, its mine-tilled earth. But in the dark, things are growing, hope is blooming.
