House for reservationFit for children

A chance to learn about the history of Tel Aviv agriculture and hear the story behind the Shalem Farm.  It was established in 1949 in the eastern part of the city for the purpose of upgrading and producing seeds.  An initiative of the company, Hazera Ltd., the farm was run and operated by families of kibbutz members, who were experienced farmers and were recruited for the task in order to supply quality seeds to other farms in the young country.  The families lived in houses designed for them by the Sharon-Idelson architecture firm (Arieh Sharon and Benjamin Idelson), who worked for the kibbutz movement.  At the time, the two-family homes were considered cutting-edge due to their layout and construction as communal residences where the children slept at home and not in separate children`s houses.

Following completion of the documentation dealing with the farm and its different buildings, which was prepared by the Mimar Naor Architecture & Conservation firm, the buildings are now undergoing preservation and restoration and will be converted into a visitors center at Ariel Sharon Park. 

Visitors will be able to see the homes currently being restored, and will also be shown the experimental plots project and the seed bank used to conserve wild Land of Israel plants at the park.
