Courses 2014-2015

Registration has opened for the 2014-2015 year of courses at the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens. This year's expanded program features two new courses alongside established favorites such as orchid growing, Bonsai art, the home garden and of course, the Labor Ministry-recognized professional gardening courses.

New this year is a course on Plants and eastern (Chinese) medicine, lead by Dr Mina Faran, and a course on Herbal and medicinal plants from the perspective of Jewish sources, lead by Avraham Dahan.

All courses are taught in Hebrew. We hope to have courses in English in the near future.

For further information and registration, please contact Tal Secemsky, director of the Horticultural School at the Gardens:
