  • The owners made this a very unique type of botanical garden. They created very unique structures throughout the garden to complement the vegetation. Worth an hour or two visit.  more »
  • The plants were beautiful! The history of how the gardens were planted was interesting. There were varieties of plants from places far and near.  more »
  • We took a long time finding the botanical garden, as one is used to botanical gardens being seperate entities. Instead the botanical garden is intermingled with the housing of the Kibbutz, making for a wonderful stroll. While looking for the botanical garden we were in the botanical garden 🙈 I also enjoyed the fact that most trees and larger plants had the date they were planted on the signs.
  • Beautiful place. Plants from all over the world. Can't believe they are able to grow them here
