Project Description

“We study here, we live here and we are now seeing how the barren desert soil is being transformed into a living green community,”- Aharon Shapira- 19-year-old Academy student

The Environmental garden at the Oztem Academy In Naveh has now been completed thanks to your generous support.

The gardens are based on local vegetation suited to the hot, dry climate. Plants of this kind will flourish in this desert region with a minimum of water and will help to provide well cared-for natural surroundings.

Footpaths have been laid, the irrigation infrastructure is in place and new pergolas provide seating areas for both students and staff.
