  • Description

    Description

    Our farm, is a school for students of all ages, mostly 9-15, situated in the northern Galilee - the coolest region of Israel, in Maalot. We have the forest of the Kziv reservation close to the fence, and the Monfort lake below us. The organic garden is dedicated to educating about the seasonal vegetables, while the terasses are full with herbs and fruit trees.
    We have 10 beehives, a plant nursury, 60 fruit tree orchard, few chickens and rabbits and a vegetable garden. We are expanding all the time. All products are given to the community and the students.
    We work in school days only, as we are part of the national education system, while in school vacations we just maintain the animals.
    Volunteers will help in gardening with children - Arabic and Jews, help in maintenance and keep the place at night.
