The Botanical Gardens Project for saving Israeli Wildflowers, In memory of the late Nehama Rivlin.
The aims of this Wildflower Seed Project are twofold. Firstly, the project introduces distinct wildflowers into Jerusalem’s gardens. Many of these plants are water saving; they do not need to be watered beyond the winter rains and can grow heartily in shade, which is a characteristic of many backyard gardens in urban Jerusalem. Thus these plants are easily cared for, making wildflowers a popular choice when choosing seeds to plant. Secondly, volunteers whether weekly or monthly, are able to participate in a meaningful social task and feel as if they are part of something bigger, while simultaneously engaging in nature conservation.
The seeds can be purchased by phone:
