A personal note:
It was an honor for me to be part of the leading group to initiate and plan the Sustainable Model Farm Project in Newe Ya’ar as part of the Center for “Environmental Research and Advanced Nutrition” of the Volcani Center. While these days the general publics are becoming more environmentally conscious and demanding for healthier and more sustainable agricultural practices, I wish to see the sustainable model farm initiated in Newe Ya’ar long functioning as for high quality research in sustainable agriculture, while successfully transferring the knowledge through education, demonstration and implementation.
