About

Join us in the most beautiful garden in Jerusalem for a short (7-14 days) volunteering opportunity as part of a Working Holiday.

We are looking for enthusiastic people to help the small gardening team at the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens to care for the 30 acres of native and international plants. You will need to be fit, reliable and willing to get your hands dirty. The work is physically tiring and there will be laughs, companionship and new experiences by the bucket-load. Our volunteers are all ages and share a common interest in the environment and conservation.

In 2020, we're planning a 12 night trip which will include 9 days working in the Gardens, 1 rest day, an all-day coach tour with guide outside Jerusalem on Saturday and possibly some home hospitality on Friday night. After work there are informal visits to places of interest in Jerusalem.

Highlights
  • working in one of the most beautiful green places in Jerusalem
  • meeting people from all over the world
  • seeing the result of your hard work
  • exploring one of the world's most important cities
