The founders of the farm – educators, environmental activists, architects, scientists and social activists established this special place as a platform for personal growth and the deep connection between man and his natural environment. The farm grew out of the vision of educator Isaac Gaziel, who believed that the most effective way to instill values of ecology was by creating a practical learning environment that did not exist in Israeli education until that time.
The farm was founded in 2003, with the aim of raising awareness of the ancient and holy connection between man and his environment by educating and demonstrating a sustainable lifestyle. As an experimental and educational center, the farm strives for ecological self-suffiency by using solar energy, independent waste treatment, rainwater harvesting, wastewater reuse, ecological construction in a variety of techniques, recycling and organic agriculture. Through our programs and workshops, we demonstrate practical ecology. The Farm is a place to learn, to grow and to develop – and to be a small nucleus of change through the programs, educational activities and the variety of experiences offered to farm visitors.
