"New agriculture must be based on values. 
It should have ecological stability. It needs to have an element of social justice, and it needs to be ingrained in our culture. "

Dikla Zisman, class 5, environmental consultant and establishes a biodynamic farm in the Golan

"I was at a biodynamic agriculture workshop in Jordan, where I met Liron and a bunch of lovely Israeli and Jordanian farmers. On the way to the workshop I felt I had found my way and that I was going to get excited. And indeed there was, and even more. It started from a deep and spiritual place and I was looking for more practice.But very quickly I connected to the spiritual place and the practice came soon too.
Recommend to anyone, a garden farmer, and ordered to join the fascinating biodynamic journey. To understand what a land is like a child, with its own character and qualities, to give it all that is possible, from the heart and the toil and to receive its fruits. ”

Adva Manor, 1st cycle, gardener

"One of the things that was most significant to me was farming in community participation. Meeting more people who are looking to innovate and create in the realm of consciousness and land - there is a common denominator of human love for everyone who came to the course meetings. The experience of combining resources and amazing wealth when meeting and sharing a way I really got rich from everyone in his field is - and this is how I would like to continue - the mutual learning and cooperation - synergistic effect that the whole is worth more than the sum of its parts - it is a characteristic of livestock When every detail supports the rule.

"There is a principle in permaculture called expanding the edges because abundance is at the edges.
This course has expanded me the edges to understand the importance of each component in the ecosystem, and the interesting ways of biodynamic agriculture to support this system.
An important course for those who want to deepen their understanding of the soil and everything that affects its growth and health. ”
