Visits to the Art Center and winery on the self-guided walking tour:
Entrance fees 25 NIS pp.
The view that unfolds as you travel along Route 40 in the Negev desert, toward Neot Semadar, is surprising. A copious desert valley spreads out giving way to a fertile oasis with abundant trees, green fields and spectacular exotic buildings. Neot Semadar invites you to its guided tour to find out about this site and the community that created it, its unique way of life and vision.
What are cooling towers? How is the water is being recycled here? What are the basic principles of organic farming? Can there be education without competition? These and many more intriguing questions will be answered by one of our veteran members in this guided tour which includes:
A visit to the impressive rather surprising Art Center and its courtyard, the art and craft gallery and shop displaying art objects created by the kibbutz artists, a photographic history of the building, a view of the fields, the orchards and the ecological site from the upper balcony and a visit in one of the various art studios.
A walk through the organic vegetable garden and the goat pen, leads to the boutique organic winery. Here you will hear about wine making in the dessert and get a tate of our wine.
You may end up your visit at the Pundak, our roadside garden restaurant, for a rest and a light meal of organic vegetarian food or just good coffee, homemade cakes and yogurt ice cream. The restaurant is also a shop that carries all our organic products grown and made in the kibbutz.
