blessed be He, cre-
ated the first man,
he took him and led him
around all the trees of the
Garden of Eden, and said to
him, "Behold my works, how
beautiful and commendable
they are. All that I created,
for your sake I created it. Pay
heed that you do not corrupt
and destroy my universe, for
there is no one to repair it

(Midrash Ecclesiastes 7):
Organic agriculture took
root in Israel when Haim
Feldner of Kibbutz Beit
Alpha in the Jezreel Valley
came to Israel from Galicia

served as a source of inspira-
tion for many other farmers,
including Mario Levy, 69, of
nearby Kibbutz Sde Eliahu
who introduced it to his kib-
butz in the 1960s. Now with
350 acres of organic fields,
mostly carrots and dates, the
kibbutz recently established a
breeding facility for insects
which are natural enemies to
pests.
