Kfar Sagol, Israel
From the moment I arrived at Kfar Sagol I felt at home. The amazing family who envisioned this eco-village and invested themselves in it’s creation provide a comfortable, healing and welcoming community. Each volunteer, from Israel or from around the world, becomes a part of the community here. Kfar Sagol radiates positive energy cultivated by Lilach and Ori and simply by observing their sustainable building practices and organic garden you can understand their value system. Within days here I confirmed with myself certain ideals that I want to live by; ideals which they practice at Sagol.
Every day I’ve worked on a different project, which has allowed to me discover new strengths and I’m encouraged to continue with work that is suited for me. The volunteer work I do here is hands-on, involved, and sustainable because it makes an impact upon me and the community here. I am learning about mud building, which I’ll use in my own life in the future, about gardening, and about working as a member of a community.
This experience has been unique because even as a volunteer I feel I’m part of a community and a family that includes Israelis and international visitors, and in my work I’m improving skills while I’m able to also see tangible results of sustainable living practices.
GoEco’s partnership with Kfar Sagol has allowed me not only to volunteer in Israel on a project I care about, but to feel at home while doing it.
