Galilee Food Forests

The Galilee Food Forests, is a registered non-profit NGO

We are creating A network of food forests in the upper galilee, made possible by an active community, and by creating a sustainable education center for agroforestry, Permaculture Food Research,

and establishing an eco-educational institute for Sustainability on public grounds.

OUR VISION

We Plant, support and promote food forests in the upper Galilee region of Israel. We dream about a network of food forests which produces organic, fresh, locally grown products that will be available, affordable and accessible.

We aim to expand our audience by implementing and promoting eco-educational tourism. We believe that by maintaining a strong, loving and caring community, we can restore nature with it.

REALISING THE DREAM

By leading the way, pioneering in sustainable education for our Galilee region community and making a centre of education for Food Forestry and sustainable food systems. Planning a food forest requires humility, respect and a close observation of the natural complexity of forests. Regeneration and natural resources are our core values, and the reason of becoming an NPO.

Education

On the food forest grounds we conduct guided walks, talks and experiences that enrich our visitors knowledge and love of nature. Our goal is to educate and support farmers and members of the community in learning and developing sustainable agricultures.

Sustainability

Our fragile planet is need of our help. In our vision the Galilee will be a pioneering transition region of education for food forestry and sustainable food systems, with an abundance of fresh organic local products, strong local economy and a healthy community.

Community

A unique project is emerging from the fertile ground of our green valley, collecting followers wherever our vision is heard.  We create free events open for anyone to join and caretake for the public land together. The food forest is by the public and for the public.

BECOME OUR PARTNERS

We are looking for new connections to grow our circle of influence.  We are in constant touch with the local authorities, such as the Upper Galilee regional Council, JNF-KKL, Drainage Authority, Antiquities Authority, National Parks & Nature Authority

Every day 10,000 trees are cut down.

Making It Possible With the Kind Help of:

What׳s a Food Forest?

A food forest is a planned agricultural forest that sustains itself as a natural eco-system.

Imagine a natural flourishing forest – trees of various sizes, shrubs and climbers, wild animals and insects all working together to create a varied and sustainable harmonious ecosystem, without a need for irrigation, insecticides or artificial fertilization

OUR MOTIVATION

I want free accessible abundance of food, organically and locally grown, together as a community.
