As my studies came to an end I was swept of my feet, dispatched by Israeli Permaculture organization to Seed Savers Exchange’s Heritage Farm to learn as much as I can rotating between the different departments of the organization. With my return to Israel after the internship, I will be replicating the amazing work\mission of this nonprofit, member-supported organization in Israel.

It is of the upmost importance for the Middle East to create an Israeli\Palestine network of seed savers. Founded in 1948 by immigrants from all corners of the world, Israel is still a very young country. It is critical that we preserve the ancient knowledge that exists within the older generation before it is to late.

I am grateful for the opportunity I was given to learn at Heritage Farm. I feel that this is the beginning of my path to create a network of seed savers to preserve our natural heritage.

With the help of Mother Nature, we will grow, succeed and reach our goals.
