Hi all nature lovers <3
You are welcomed to join us to help, learn, be inspired , inspire , and re-connect in our organic farm located in the canter of Israel.
We are Bar and Yael , young couple creating a unique sustainability canter in our organic beautiful farm with the vision of creating a Rehabilitation farm - We believe that working and creating, or even just being, with nature is heart opening, healing and ables us to go through important processes.
After years of traveling the world , volunteering and learning life have brought us here to Yael's fathers old land to revive his vision turning our very special piece of earth into an educational farm, creating a platform which will allow people to re-connect , create and learn throw earth , forming connections with activists and dreamers who have the calling to benefit the land and creating a wide community of people who take care of nature spread knowledge and walk the earth way and skills.
In the passed years (and on going) we took care of re building the soil supporting the natural local ecosystem and making the farm a productive life-full blossoming land - we mainly grow heirloom vegetables from seed to seed (small scale) , take care of saving and spreading heirloom seeds and growing amazing edible Mushrooms and teach that too.
To support it all, we teach our knowledge regarding Permaculture and Ecological lifestyle and host other workshops in our beautiful natural builded space to share their knowledge.
We are now founding a new sector in the farm planing and planting few hundreds of local and edible trees to re-heal the local ecosystem in a bigger scale and for future generations that will also allow us to enrich the educational work we do and allowing more people to touch and heal through the work with trees and nature.
We work in the farm every day : growing and taking care of the different plants and areas in the farm, harvesting our produce to the restaurants (we do farm to table - working with top chefs in Israel ) , taking care of our chickens welfare, creating new ecological , arts and educational projects, along with daily works and maintenance. We are happy to have extra hands and hearts , be granted of your help and beautiful energy and share our love and knowledge.
we also host people who travel on the INT (Israeli national trail) additional to volunteers from all over the world and locals. all of these hearts adding to a big loving community of support . we believe that the more the merrier so feel free to join !
Through all year round the help needed in the farm is daily from early morning so you have the rest of the day for yourselves to enjoy the inspiration and breeze in the different beautiful spots in the farm and wilderness surrounding.
The tasks are mostly outside ( in hot summer days we take care to do work in shaded places in the hot hours).
comfortable accommodation (see below) . Usually we cook and eat together when we share workday or evening time and there is a nice equipped kitchen for your use whenever you want with basic Ingredients and some of our produce .
The farm is secluded and wild :) its a place full of inspiration and good energy , intimate and calm atmosphere. and also full of wildlife , animals ( such as snakes and humans:) . It is located in the middle of a beautiful reserved park - 'Hasharon' park (40 min norther from Tel Aviv, easy to reach by train or bus from all parts of the country ) The farm is right on the 'Israel National Trail' that crosses all of Israel and in from of our gate . It is 2 km from the beach (air distance)

The tasks on the farm are very diverse and rewarding. even meditating sometimes to do a repetitive task while listening to the birds and our thoughts . the tasks can be challenging and in hot Israeli tempters yet very fulfilling and carries a lot of added value.
The help is mostly in the different growing areas : harvesting, weeding invasive plants , planting, sawing, pruning , seed collecting , ect.
In addition helping with new projects such as building and art projects (like building a coop , mud structures, fixing things, organising ) or help before and during workshops we host here.
You don't need past experience only passion , eager to learn and participate .
as we sometimes also devide the tasks between us independency at work is important.
We usually prefer volunteers for about 2 weeks period MINIMUM (as it takes at least a few days to adapt to a new place and energy therefore a real deep process is starting only after)
*A very nice and comfortable room for volunteers ( 2 single beds and one double bed).
* Many shaded breeze areas to set your tent under a tree in your favourite spot for extra privacy (we will give you a mattress and sheets ) - highly recommended (accept from November to February)
Just stepping outside there is a beautiful endless park. 15 min drive from the beach, and 40 min walk from the wilderness to Alexander river . It is very close to the train station so basically everything is close. many Young cool people are living in this area. You should know the farm is quite secluded, but you'll probably meet so beautiful people and friend here and find here everything you need:)
We accept workawayers for approximately a 2 weeks but can be flexible , mostly longer periods, or a bit shorter and as long as theres a good connection and need you could stay with us for as much as it fits all .
