The Jewish Press just received the following email from Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, the two inspired souls behind the Women in Green organization.
“As you know,” goes the email, “one of our projects is safeguarding state lands in the hills of Netzer, by planting trees. Over the past few years, we have planted almost a thousand trees.
“After the planting comes the difficult safeguarding and upkeep which includes having to plow the land, which is crucial for the trees to grow well.”
According to Katsover and Matar, two of the feistiest women this side of East New York, the local Arabs, with millions of dollars in funding from the EU and anti-Israeli NGO’s, do the plowing using fancy, new tractors, others still prefer a good, old plow and horse combo.
“We don’t have the funds for a tractor, nor the upkeep on a tractor, and working with a horse is complicated,” the two women write. We’re looking to purchase a motorized plow that’s easy to manage by one person.”
If you’re interested in helping these spirited women who devote their lives to Jewish settling in Eretz Israel, they say the cost of a plow should run between $1,320 and $2,636.
