are engaged in activities
both natural and practical.
The community at Clil is
aware that as a by-product
of intensive development
there inevitably comes
over-exploitation of the
land. They are seeking to
return to the land what they
take from it, leaving fertile,
healthy soil for future gen-
erations.
At first there was some
doubt in the mind-of the—
few families farming The
land that it was feasible
to reach self-sufficient
levels of productivity
without resorting to
chemical fertilizers and
insecticides. For a time
the ideology of. organic
farming hung in the bal-
ance. Fortunately, how-
ever, a veteran expert in
organic farming from a
neighboring kibutz
came to the rescue of the
young farmers and
taught them the tech-
niques of organic farm-
ing. The results spoke for
themselves.
From that time the com-
munity has never looked
back. Not only do they es-
chew modern farming
methods but they are also
moving towards supplying
much 'of their .own energy
through wind-power and
solar heating. They are
talking of possible future
methods of supplying
energy, such as gobar gas.
They are not against mod-
ern inventions but do not
wish to be reliant on any
centralized body such as the
Electricity Board or even
the Jewish Agency itself.
The community at Clil is
trying to reconcile coopera-
tion and independence.
Each family has its own
views — some want wash-
ing machines, others be-
lieve them to be an unneces-
sary luxury. Most are veg-
etarian, yet there are two
families raising beef cattle.
Despite differences there is
an overall feeling of cooper-
ation.
Many of the houses have
looms and sewing machines
so that they can produce
their own cloth and mate-
rials and there are plans for
pottery and carpentry
workshops. Eventually it is
envisaged that the village
will provide from itself for
all the basic needs of the
This is a pos-
itively revolutionary con-
ception in the 1980's.

the future, in the eyes of
many realistic observers, is
one of limited resources in
the world, recycling of exist-
ing materials and a move
away from large urban con-
glomerations back to small
self-sufficient rural com-
munities. This is the projec-
tion of many scientific
analysts and not only of
prophets of universal doom.
At Clil, whether for
ideological or personal rea-
sons, a village. has been es-
tablished which corre-
sponds to -a -model suiting
the direction in which the
world may be moving.
Therefore it may well prove
to be a most relevant exper-
iment for similar com-
munities in Israel and
elsewhere.

The community corn-
prises people of many
skills. Apart from the
professional artisans
there are teachers, a con-
tractor, and two doctors,
one of whom is presently
studying homeopathy. To
become entirely eco-
nomically self-sufficient
is the goal, and they be-
lieve that in a few years
they will already be able
to subsist without any
further support from
outside. Each family has
different ideas as to how
this can be achieved and
as to what role they play
in bringing it about, but
the common ideals are
strong enough to cement
this community together.
