BSc. Agriculture Research coordinator for cut flowers and ornamental plants in the Arava R&D (since 2005). Our research focuses mainly on finding new species with adaptability to the local harsh conditions and with potential for profit for the Arava farmers. We are also examining solutions for improving flower cultivation methodology. In addition, I am responsible for developing new vegetable crops and for growing medicinal desert plants in the experimental station. Live in Moshav Idan together with my husband Ariel and our three children. Together, we work in our farm and grow mostly pepper for export.
