Tuesday, January 25 (Day in JNF Nursery and Speaker Program)
Dear Friends and Family,
Sorry, that we have been behind in writing the blog. We have been so busy – just didn’t get a chance to get it all down. But…now you have it. Today was forest day in the central JNF Nursery. We prepared trays of soil for others to plant seedlings. We were told that we do more work in the few hours we are there – than the employees do in a workday. We prepared over 3 pallets of trays – stacked 7 layers high! Even our bus driver, Moti, helped out. After a picnic lunch – yes, the weather was warm and sunny – great to be outdoors – we headed back to Tel Aviv for rest and for some shopping at the Tuesday Craft Fair.
We are looking forward to new people joining us today, but sorry to say goodbye to Nina and Rosalie. This evening we will be viewing a movie and meeting the Israeli producer, Yael Katzir. Another first for CAARI! Tomorrow we leave for a few days in the Galilee.
Our best to family and friends,
