Our logo is an interpretation of Da Vinci’s The Man. Da Vinci’s original shows the balance and symmetry of the natural human form, the inherent strength to be found in each individual. Our logo, affectionately known as “Seed-of-Liberty Man,” expresses the same strength and vital energy with fluidity and grace. Seed-of-Liberty Man has burst through the paradigm of perceived restrictions, reaching beyond in an extension of self, stretching past known boundaries to go where none have gone before. He is framed by the organic shape of a seed pod, a natural potency of vital growth to the full potential of innate pure goodness of the unconditioned human mind. Grounded in the Law of Nature, growing from the soil of resolve, sustained by the water of hope, nourished by the sunshine of truth, he grows upward toward a higher possibility, while deepening his roots of inner strength and steadfastness. He is strong and graceful, grounded on earth and reaching toward heaven. He is a volunteer, DNA coded by the Law of Nature to make manifest among men the Law of Equal Liberty.

Kibbutz Lotan, Center for Creative Ecology

Kibbutz Lotan’s Center for Creative Ecology is rooted in “Tikkun Olam” -- the Jewish concept for repairing and transforming the world. It began with a small desert organic garden, and expanded to become a unique ecological education center that combines hands-on, experiential environmental education, within the framework of a living community. Utilizing creative recycling and alternative/natural building techniques, the center now includes an ecological theme park, migratory bird reserve, nature trails, recycling center, and constructed wetlands for treating the waste water of the entire kibbutz.

The Center has also created an eco-village within the kibbutz, which serves as the campus for the Green Apprenticeship, an intensive seven week permaculture and eco-village design course, which is offered four times a year. The eco-campus serves as a prototype model for sustainable living that is a learning experience in itself.

The Center for Creative Ecology is an innovator and model in Israel and beyond for promoting ecological building, waste management and environmental education, and also for its work in promoting sustainability through the building of bridges between different ethnic groups in Israel.

Meshek Zuf (Nectar Farm),
Meshek Zuf , Pardes Hana, Israel
Meshek Zuf (Nectar Farm) is a new permaculture farm being started in Pardes Hana, Israel. Meshek Zuf is half an acre (2 dunams) in a suburban area, sub tropical climate. Its a diverse farm growing vegetable, eggs, medicinal plants, and in few years fruits, and also books... since I started the first (and so far only) permaculture publication, named YA'AR (=forest), all practical human-land info printed on recycled paper (from orange peels and algea). I aim to bring to local non-english-readers practical working tools in hebrew. so far we have 3 books on the shelfs, one of them is the local guide to permaculture that I wrote, named "Paradise at your Front yard", 263 pages. Also at Meshek Zuf I give 4, 72 hr permaculture courses every year. (Talia developed the Shomera project in the Jerusalem Forest) Developments: Soon we will publish a translation of "The Humanure Handbook" by Jenkins, and "Small Steps Towards Abundence" by the local Dr. Elaine Solowey about hard food crops.

Wing of Love
Boaz Miller, Moshav Neta'im, 76870, Israel
An ecological project in a wildlife park that helps disadvantaged young people to gain work skills, an income, and self-esteem through productive labour in a natural setting. Our wildlife park offers a sheltered and safe work place for young people with special needs. We use educational programs to develop good work habits caring for the wildlife and necessary skills (e.g. responsibility, work to time constraint, task completion) so that they can hold down a job when they leave us. We create opportunities for our young people to meet and interact with people without special needs. We also help them to develop business ventures in the park, such as breeding birds and farming organic eggs. Our park has over a hundred species of wildlife and specializes in fowl. We have a successful breeding centre as well. Developments: We are currently working with two groups of young people with special needs - one group of 13 year-olds and another of 18-21 year olds. We are about to open a hostel for "lost" youth, aged 14-16, who have dropped out of state education, and will re-educate to fit into society by teaching them to work in the wildlife park and develop business in the park, so that by the end of their stay with us they will have work experience and be able to go out and find their place in the work market. We are looking for financial support to develop our permaculture and to convert our animal cages into ecological enclosures.

Permaculture Jordan
Marda Permaculture Farm
Palestine has some problems, and Marda brings some new solutions. The farm is an oasis of green in a land that is dry, where Palestinians have lived under great hardship, yet where there is a promise of a new future. We believe that permaculture is a key ingredient in the future, not only for Palestine, but for the Middle East and the world. We're setting out to show how it's done.
Bustan Qaraaqa (the Tortoise Garden) is a community permaculture project, based in the West Bank town of Beit Sahour (Shepherds’ Fields), close to the city of Bethlehem. The aim of the project is to propagate a grassroots environmental movement in the Palestinian Territories to address the problems of food insecurity and environmental degradation that threaten the well-being of the population; problems that are going unaddressed as a result of the ongoing Israeli military occupation which impedes effective development.
