    The Volunteers team starts most days with picking everything needed for the daily market in the kibbutz's shop, and then heads on to other projects, including planting, weeding, gardening, packing, building, pruning trees, and maintaining the farm.

    What else ...

    Our soil is very rich and we take care to keep it alive to nourish the vegetables that grow here. We ask for volunteers to come for a minimum of two weeks. In the field we have a workshop of people coming from a rehabilitation community. We believe in healing the earth while being healed by the earth. We work and live on the farm with this ideal.
    We dont drink or use drugs on the farm. we are located in the small hills in the lower Galilee, a beautiful area and the Mediterranean sea within view. There is also a small river within walking distance.
