Urban Agriculture in Pisgat Ze'ev.

In October 2015, the JGF approved its first grant of 17,000 NIS for an environmental education program for two third grade classes in the Pisgat David religious elementary school. The JGF funding, together with 6,000 NIS matching funds from the school, enables SPNI trained guides to work with the children for four hours a week. The children are taking responsibility for the school yard and developing a vegetable garden.

 

An interesting result of this initiative has been the collaboration between the Pisgat David religious elementary school and the neighboring Yoni Netanyahu secular elementary school. The two schools have decided to work together to reclaim the open derelict space between their campuses.

 

Planning and maintenance of the formerly neglected area are being done by students from both schools, in conjunction with the local community center. Working together to rehabilitate the area and grow food, all participants experience a meaningful partnership to improve the local environment, generate a cultural dialogue between religious and secular residents while generating a local urban food source.

 

We look forward to reporting as the program proceeds.
