    Good Host

 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks

  • Description



    After more then 2 years of roaming the world, and due to Corona, we are back in the farm.
    we are an Eco-Spiritual farm based in the Judean Plains, 45 minutes from Jerusalem and one hour from Tel Aviv.

    The food-forest we planted here include various types of fruit trees, along with edible plants. Occasionally there are meditation and other spiritual workshops that are happening in the place.

    We continue to create the place: plant the young food-forest and taking care of the trees already planted, tending to the veg. garden, looking after the chickens, and doing some Eco building: renewing the compost toilets and outdoor shower, building the outdoor kitchen and a living space for volunteers, and occasionally mud buildings.

    Accommodation are simple - in the summer volunteers sleep in tents under shade roof. There are compost toilets and outdoor shower and beautiful outdoor kitchen.

    Being an organic farm, we use only products that are pure organic and nature friendly: soap, shampoo and tooth pasts.
    in addition, it is a non smoking and alcohol/drugs free zone. We get high on life itself :)

    We welcome those of you who LOVE and working in the garden, are handimen/weman, friendy but also know and love to be with themselves.

    We welcome people to come for a longer stay, of minimum 2 weeks.

    What else ...

    the place located in a small and peaceful village, an hour away from the major cities of Israel -Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beer Sheva. 30 min. From the beach, 20 min. from the train and bus stations that will take you anywhere in Israel. there is a local bus a few times a day, and hitchhiking is very common.

    We are looking for people who know and love to live with others and also love being alone. People who love the quietness and love living in simplicity. We are vegetarians here, tending towards vegan and the whole place is a non-smoking area, to support the meditative atmosphere. We respect each other space and borders, and also love to meet and share good music if you play, good food and the adventure of being alive,
