Purchasing land &
Creating Food forest
The beginning of the project
Create a source of food security for the community living near the forest and maintains it.
Rehabilitation and restoration of natural diversity to agricultural land .
In order to fulfill our vision, the organization needs to have 60 of agricultural dunams .
Currently the association has no resources to purchase 60 dunams.
(To sustain one person for a whole year on fruits, we need approximately 2 dunams of food forest. Our vision is a community of about 30 people. For each one of those people we need 2 dunams, hence the need to purchase an agricultural land of 60 dunams in Galilee).
Why food forest?
Food forests have great benefit to the environment, and many advances - both over conventional farming and artificial afforestation methods that are practiced in Israel in recent years. They return the richness and large biodiversity to the soil, as it was before it turned agriculture, reducing the pollution of water, air and soil in the area, providing food security to the forest dwellers - both wildlife and people living in them. A food forest chain around the Mediterranean could help in curbing the global desertification process, which causes loss of food, extinction of species, and contributes to the multiplication of poverty. In addition, a well-designed food forest can serve as a buffer to protect against the spread of fire.
Currently the association is looking for the perfect land to purchase, on which will be constructed the future food forest , that will sustain the community and be sustained by it.
