Wartime Soil Protection

A call for critical funds at critical times!

The Israel-Gaza war has placed immense stress on Israeli agriculture. Farmers have been murdered, evacuated or drafted. Those left are struggling to tend their land amidst loss of workers and machinery. This poses an immediate risk of soil erosion and flooding in the war zone watershed, the largest watershed in Israel that flows directly into Gaza.

Watersheds flow beyond borders and without regard to war. 

The harsh winter forecasted could lead to severe flooding if crucial farming preparations are not implemented immediately.

Why is it so urgent? 

Soils must be seeded in order to stabilize and hold water because without plant cover, the harsh winter storms will hit bare soil, water won't be able to infiltrate and floods will build up taking precious soils with it. In the midst of war, lack of soil protection can induce losses of topsoil resources for farmers, in addition to a serious climatic threat impacting Israelis and Palestinians living in the war zone watershed!

What needs to happen urgently?

Soil protection by sowing cover crops.

We are ready to execute a farmer support operation where a specialized seeding workforce will implement cover crops on strategic critical farmland locations to prevent soil loss and flooding. The estimated cost of support per hectare is 370 USD, including seeds, sowing machinery and labor. This is an urgent effort as the rainy season is starting.
With your support we can stabilize soil in an unstable time!


Who is leading the initiative?

‘Organic Israel’, ‘The Living Soil Center’, and ‘ReGen’, some of Israel's leading organizations on the pivotal connection between farming and climate change. 


Our team is ready to sow over 3,000 hectares immediately. This task is urgent!
