In this Agricultural tour in my family’s organic farm in Moshav Netaim, we will learn about the history of the citrus plantations in Israel and the special characteristics of these trees.
We will enjoy some herb tea from herbs that grow in the farm and we will learn about the different orchard species that grow in the farm and some exotic species as well. We will also enjoy solving riddles by the information available on the signs of the different plants in the farm, and we will learn about the differences between a Moshav and a Kibbutz. In the Jeep trip we will drive along the Soreq River and in the dunes of Palmahim, and we will visit “Nebi Rubin”- the burial site of Reuben of the twelve tribes by some traditions.
We will continue on driving in one of the last areas in the center of Israel where the agriculture still flourishes. In the blossoming seasons we will also visit the beautiful small national park- hill of Irises.
