In November a group of 22 farmers from Kenya arrived in Israel for an agricultural tour.
After arrival they were taken to Kibbutz Ketura to settle in and for overnight. The next day was spent on this Kibbutz which is part of the Green Kibbutz Movement including a visit to a solar field and Algatechnologies – a biotechnology company, experimental fields and a dairy farm.
The next day the group traveled to Hatzeva Research & Development centre & the Yair Station, an amazing Agriculture site in the southern area of Israel where they learned about Organic Farming and Water Management. They also had some time to relax at the Dead Sea and enjoy the therapeutic water.
