New Life for Old Things
Dr Anna Godneva and Dr Shira Belotzky are leading an exciting initiative together with a team of senior citizens artisans. Their team has found purpose and fulfillment in give a new flavour, colour, look or use to objects that have been in their families for year, but had been cast aside. Check out their work and upcoming exhibition on their website. Some of the profits from the sale of their items will go to the Jerusalem Green Fund.
The Jerusalem Wildflower Sanctuary in Neve Yaakov began in 2001 as an attempt to rescue the many beautiful native plants which flourished in French Hill before a massive new construction project destroyed their habitat. The same procedure was repeated in 2012-2013 when over 400 units of flats was constructed in Neve Yaakov. Thousands of plants found a new home in the Sanctuary.
The native trees, bulbs and seeds which have been planted in this formerly neglected and barren spot become the focus of an educational research and recreational center. At the present time, over 270 species are detected, 30 protected species are growing in the Wildflower Sanctuary.
