Yesterday the Israeli Board members visited Neve Ya’ar R&D, where 3 researchers presented lectures:
The Model Farm – a sustainable agricultural farm
Mango Cold Stress
Recycling Agricultural Plastic
Later we went to see the improvement plots (melon, gourds and deciduous orchards) and learned about the orchard crisis due to a nonexistent budget.
The second site we visited was The Human Gate, a pre-academic institute for youth who are comprised of Israeli Arabs and Jews, as well as foreign participants.
It was absolutely amazing to see what is going on, giving us hope that future generations will benefit and be better.
