“Filling the Fruit Basket” – Searching for the Seven Species in Sataf

Let’s set forth on a tour that celebrates the bounty of the earth, tracking the seven species that have blessed this land, amidst agricultural terraces and ancient garden rows.

On the outskirts of Jerusalem, along the steep slopes of green hills, are two natural springs that have nourished hillside agriculture for generations. To this day, the farmers here follow the agricultural practices of biblical times.


We will embark on a “green” tour that combines history, greenery, and life-giving waters, tracing the seven species that blessed this land. We will descend along the mountain slopes, wade in the cool spring waters, and learn about ancient agriculture.
