Project Details: This project welcomes both local and international volunteers. During the camp you will experience planting different types of trees and help us bring new life to the farm. A special program will be prepared for each day, which will include orientation, learning about the land situation, lectures, workshops, documentary movies and field trips to Bethlehem and surroundings..
Weather (March): The weather is usually warm, windy with light rain and temperatures between 18º-24º. On the farm it is usually warm but windy during the day and gets cold in the evenings – around 10º. Please be aware that during this period, the weather is changeable; it can rain at any time but we can also enjoy a lot of sun. In the event of rain, the program will go on; we will switch the days and arrange for tree planting on the drier days.
