A ‘Sustainable’ Jewish Homeland

Food tours are everywhere — and these days you can eat your way through almost any country with a tour group of fellow foodies. But there have been few tour options for those interested in not just the food, but where and who it’s coming from.

Hazon, a Jewish environmental and food non-profit, is hoping to change that. It will run its first Israel Sustainable Food Tour this coming November. About a dozen Jewish lay leaders and foodies are expected to take part in the five-day trip, during which they’ll learn about sustainable food developments in the Jewish state.

The tour will take an on-site look at Israel’s Community Supported Agriculture, Bedouin farms, organic wineries, artisanal food, and sustainable agriculture ventures bringing together Israelis and Palestinians. Participants will also meet with Israeli farmers, scientists and community food activists along the way.

A list of the tour highlights, and a Q&A with its organizers can be seen here.

I’ll take a (sustainable) bite of that.
