So here I am, finally escaped the big city to continue learning about permacultre and to spend time with dear friends. I am at Merav's place in Nahalal (Jezreel Valley, Northern Israel). Nahalal is the first settlement of its kind and it is also shaped as a pie, so each family got a piece when it was founded in 1921.
Myself, Maya and Tracey (we all met studying the green apprenticeship at kibbutz Lotan www.kibbutzlotan.com) are staying here now and trying to help out with the garden and future projects that include straw bale/mud building.
It's amazing how the garden has changed in a couple of months time, there are soooo may tomatoes, and also onions, zucchini, fennel ,potatoes, cucumbers, coriander, zaatar, mint, beans and the list goes on.
There is also a small recycling center so it not only feels good to prevent all those things going to a landfill but its also so comfortable to have so many materials around to work with.
Great things are happening over here and there is surely more to come.
