Daniel and Inbal arrived to work for two weeks as interns. The couple were on break from college in Israel and called Chris because they wanted to have the experience of working on a farm. Although we had had an intern all summer, the two weeks that they were willing to work ended up being a wonderful end to our busy season.
Daniel, originally from New York now living in Israel and Inbal from Israel, immediately went to work the day after arriving here and didn't stop until the day they left two weeks later! The two of them helped Bill with all of the daily chores, moved fencing, pruned trees and so much more.
The work that Daniel and Inbal put in was so much appreciated but the knowledge that we gained about Israel was the highlight of their stay here. The kids got to know the two of them very well and before they left they even made us the traditional Israeli dish shakshuka with ingredients from our farm.
We were so lucky this year to have such wonderful interns. We learned so much from all three of them and we hope that they took away some valuable knowledge from their experiences here. The growing interest in our farm and especially from young people who have the power to change the way that we think about food is truly heartwarming.
