It 's an hour away from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in the heart of "Bitronot Ruhama" Nature Reserves. We have a retreat center that has been used by groups to celebrate holidays or events, have yoga or dance classes, for field trips and learning about gardening - the imagination is the limit. We have a hydroponic garden, an outdoor garden, a grey water system, a mudhouse, two pools, and we are continuing to develop new things. We enjoy our peaceful life out here and take daily walks around the area to enjoy the wildflowers and the sunset. There are two dogs and two cats who live here, so you must like animals!
The volunteers have a room of their own in the house. There is wifi and any kind of anything else you may need, including hammocks to lounge in and papayas and passionfruit freshly picked from the garden. We would like to have volunteers who can help out with the room maintenance, laundry, general house work, and gardening. We would love to have volunteers develop some projects of their own as well. We are looking to get some yoga started in the retreat center and we would like to have artists who paint, sculpt, etc.
I had a great time at Kfarnavon with Ram! I stayed there for a month and a half and time flew by. Ram is a great guy with a great sense of humour and he made me feel welcome straight away. The fact that he speaks spanish made it all even better. I will miss, Lucille, Pikachu and Pastel, Ram's three beautiful, adorable dogs. Those three girls will always have a place in my heart. I learnt a lot about Israel that I didn't know and met wonderful local people through Ram. I made a friend for sure and I will miss him. Gracias por todo, amigo!

This was one of my greatest experience! Ram, the host is super friendly, helpful, and does his best to make us feel at home. He cooks good food for us, and definitely knows how to receive people. I loved my fellows, the sweetest dogs in the world, Pika, Lucile and Pastel. The always made my day. We get a comfortable room and bathroom for us, the tasks are easy and not difficult at all. The place is very quiet, though. So if you prefer parties and hectic places, don't go because this experience won't fit your lifestyle. I super recommend!!!

Since the very moment I arrived I was received as family, that was very special for me as it was my first trip out of my country and first trip alone. Ram is a wonderful hoster, he always makes sure you feel good and confortable, as guest and as volunteer, and Pikaaaa... she is a great companion!!! :)
There is no pression on work and Ram will provide everything you should need to do a good job! I was going to stay only 2 weeks and I stayed 5, just as I had to come back to my Colombian job. Thank you Ram!!! It was like a dream, and I will keep the best momories in my mind and ♡. :)

NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE! It was the best experience so far. Ram is an angel and his place surrounded by nature is very peaceful! We applied to stay 1 month, but we stayed 2 and we did not stay more only because our visa, otherwise we probably would be there now hahaha. We will remember this experience for the rest of our lives as well as Ram (Pica, Toto and Gingi - the lovely animals) as a very good friends! Thanks again Ram for everything! Miss all of you!
