Call for Action: Save Endangered Plants in Israel
Wildflower Seeds Project
The Wildflower Seeds Project is collective venture between the Friends of the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens and the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens Hub for Urban Sustainability. The project consists of volunteer groups representing a microcosm of Jerusalem's many communities, who see to it that these wildflowers and their seeds continue to prosper. Friends of the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens have been volunteering at the JBG for more than 30 years and spend half a day each at the Gardens. ALUT, Israel's Society for Adults and Children with Autism, and REUT, providing community vocations for those with psychiatric, physical, and intellectual disabilities in Israel are also both active supporters in the quest to bring wildflowers back into gardens or otherwise. The HUB's popular Gardening Club includes English, Hebrew and Arabic volunteers.
