    If you love nature, are interested in modern agriculture, and would like
    to meet Israelis from the full spectrum of Israeli society, as well as young people like yourself from all over the world, this is your opportunity to volunteer on a moshav.

    A moshav is a unique cooperative agricultural community, instituted
    in Israel about a century ago. The moshav consists of economically independent members who are dedicated to growing food for the country, employing the most advanced technological agricultural innovations. Volunteers in our program (minimum 3 months) work five days a week performing various agricultural tasks, with weekends free to tour, party and have fun with their fellow volunteers and local Israelis. Volunteers get free lodgings, food, and even pocket money. A volunteer coordinator is available at all times to provide assistance, guidance and support where needed.
