Tu B'Shvat Tree Planting
This week is Tu B' Shvat, the Jewish holiday of the trees. We will be planting trees this week and next in the area of the olive groves. They will be of several varieties, not olives. This will create a healthier grove that is home to many types of life, as well as doing our part to increase the number of trees on the planet. If you want to help, just make a donation to the environmental organization of your choice. Then send us the name of the organization in a letter (use the "contact" link at the top of the page). We'll make sure a tree gets planted in your name. And let the organization you chose know that gezerolives supports their efforts!

I'm Dani Livney, a member of Kibbutz Gezer, and the manager of the Gezer olives. I love it! I also work as a lawyer, focusing on environmental projects and promoting environmental empowerment and education.
