About the intern: Alexandra

My name is Alexandra Basar and I am one of the five interns the Association of Urban Farming has this summer. I am from Memphis, Tennessee and I am currently a part of Onwards Sustainability and Green Energy Program. For the past three years, I have been studying Environmental Science and Biology at University. This is my third time visiting Israel, and I am so happy to be doing what I love in one of my favorite places.

Back in the states, I have worked on two farms, and the Association has provided me with my first experience with urban farming units. We get to work with hydroponic techniques such as: N.F.T (Nutrient Film Technique), drip systems, traditional garden beds. I am learning the importance of urban farming within the local economy and community within Tel Aviv. All the interns have been going to various projects around the city, ranging from

Nutrient-film-technique (NFT) hydroponic system at Ha'Yarden school.

helping with the rooftop garden and working with Balfour and Ha'Yarden school on the kid’s end of the year project. I have loved being able to see the enthusiasm and care the kids have for the plants and community gardens they are a part of. There is so much more in store for the month to come, and I am really excited to be working with such an amazing organization for the rest of the summer. ✴
