Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
The farm is still in the stage of building up and developping. You will have the chance to be part of the process which is exciting and interesting.
You could learn about permaculture and experience alternative way of living in israel.
We need help with a variety of light building projects, using different materials, some gardening, cleaning and maintanence, and maybe some other stuff.
Various tents and huts are scattered around the farm and used as living spaces for residents, volunteers and guests. You can have your own private space, or sleep in the public spaces - indoors or outdoors - if you prefer. We share the kitchen, outdoor shower and compost toilets. Your food is on us, and we eat most of our meals together, mostly vegetarian.
There are beautiful hiking trails in the area. The Gilboa mountain ridge is a special nature reserve. There are several natural springs in the region. A dip in the cool water of a spring is recomended at the end of a working day. A few minutes drive from the farm is Bet-Shean, with the impressive ruins of a big roman city.
There is good public transportation, just a minute walk away.
