The Greenhouse is expanding its partnership with factories including Granot Enterprises, Avocado Granot, Amber, Miger, Gan Shmuel Food, Bio-Bee, Metzerplas, Latimaria and the Stockton Group in a one of a kind educational model.
The factories provide our students with challenging exercises while providing guidance and support, creating a unique experience that familiarizes students with real industry challenges. This year 15 students will carry out projects in cooperation with our industrial partners. They will be guided by volunteer experts working with the Greenhouse. We owe great thanks to all of our partners, volunteers and staff who have given us the renewable power and fresh perspectives needed to make this project a success.

Our Growing Together program continues to flourish. Over a three-month series, Jewish and Arab students come together for a curriculum taught jointly in Hebrew and Arabic to study environmental challenges. The program is led by Dr. Ilana Eron and Zina Ghanem and is coordinated by Fatma Badran and Renee Kabha. The program hosts “twin schools” (Arab and Jewish): Mevo'ot & Meisser, Reut & a-Shafi'i, Barta'a & Shvilim. This year we are going to renew our program add new teachers to the stuff and create the infrastructure that will enable to spread the program to more schools in Israel. 
Derech Kfar - Scientific Education for all
Scientific education can build the students confidence, helping them to get more opportunities at the future.
The Greenhouse along runs the "Derech Kfar" program. Students at the TOM Herev Laet Youth Village, new immigrants from Ethiopia and France, study scientific education, urban agriculture, hydroponics and “green walls” in a hands-on social setting. We believe that that scientific education can build the students confidence and self-esteem, and will help them to get more opportunities at the future.
The “Algae and Me” - A Training Course for Teachers 
Algae teaching course at the Greenhouse. Working with teachers enable us to spread the knowledge to more schools in Israel 
This year, we began to run courses to teachers in the field of algae research. Teachers from thirteen schools around the country are participating. As part of the framework of the course, teachers receive the materials and instructions required to teach the study of algae, focusing on Spirulina algae, which are considered a "superfood". Algae constitute an essential component of the Earth’s ecological systems, both in food webs and in the production of oxygen.
