Garden of Peace

10 years ago, pupils from a school in Jerusalem went to Sataf once a week during the whole year along with Palestinian pupils to do some gardening together. A documentary was made.

Again in 2012/13, a group of Arab and Jewish children from East and West Jerusalem have been meeting every week to work together at Sataf, the popular nature and excursion center to the west of the capital. Together they have grown vegetables and spices in the Peace Garden, participated in a variety of activities, got in touch with nature and – most importantly – got to know one another.

A new movie was made along with an educational website providing project management tools to launch similar programs.
