We won this time, for the first time, to bring for our winners pots with seedlings and soil, to plant with them : parsley, lettuce, celery and green onions, in a large planter. for that, joined us Snunit, who work in the gardening nursary, which “turned on” to the idea and offered her help saying that her mother is a Holocaust survivor. Initially, she guided the students, how to do the planting and then the survivors, how to take care for plants that have planted with their own hands, as she also explains the use of what they can do with the plants. Our winners, were completely surprised. Indeed, most of the people from P. Channa, have started their lives as farmers, but it was kind of a reminder, appears to connect them back to what they experienced as new immigrants and young people upon their arrival to Israel. In this picture you can see how Snunit explains to us, how to do the planting, and then we were ready to get off when we were divided into two groups
. Zvia with the boys, went to Yonah, who was very excited and she have planted, watered, and told all her friends about it. And even for the first time, agreed to leave the house, and join the visit to Mordechai and Yeshayahu. Yeshayahu – went for a several days through hospitalization, and was in bed recovering from his illness (heart problems). Mordechai,was happy to meet them, talking about his health and well-being. I went with a group of girls, went to Chaya and Morris, who were in bed with health problems, but were happy to see us and with their daughter, we planted and explained what to do with it. From there, we got to Clara and Leonid, who received us with joy, and Clara planted
with us. Leonid is very fond of flowers, and certainly she will share with him the treatment of the plants. From there we came to Zipora,
garden and it was an upgrade, which she never thought about. She got out of her house, and joyfully has planted with us Aliza also, rose from the sofa, despite her back pains, and with pleasure has planted with us, and said that it was the beginning of refreshing her abandoned garden, because of recent medical conditions. We returned home with the feeling that something fresh and new, has happened today, and will promote and increase awareness of our survivors, for what they can do to better their quality of life and food.
