Visit an independent, eco-friendly village in west Galilee where the residents live “off the grid” much like the inhabitants did thousands of years ago. Life in Clil is mostly agricultural and entirely in harmony with nature. The landscape is blanketed with organic gardens and ancient olive groves that are harvested using traditional methods. Alternative medicine is commonly practiced, and the businesses are green and sustainable. Artist Batya Margalit will offer her perspective of living in the community and how she invented a gas-fueled oven because there wasn’t electricity. Similarly, the founder of Tzuf honey will show you around the organic honey company that he founded in Clil. The story of Clil is inspirational, as is the nurturing lifestyle. A light lunch follows at a boutique dairy farm in nearby Kibbutz Shomrat. There, you will sample a variety of cheeses and yogurts made from goat’s milk using time-honored techniques.
