about me

My name is Ariel Benjamin. I built this website to commemorate the activities of my mother - the late Ruth Benjamin, and her efforts to implement the gardening throughout the country.
Benjamin Ruth was an agronomist and opinion leaders on gardening, conducted for many years the botanical garden ornamental farm and wrote many articles and encyclopedia for gardeners.
My primary mission was successful - because you are now on the website and read these words.
Remaining tasks are continuing to collect articles she wrote, and their publication, professional and financial support in the Botanical Garden ornamental farms, and establishing a heritage center and library in the Botanical Garden that will bear her name.
I ask nothing in return, but you can express support user by tract of ads that are on the site.
Originally written in Hebrew , and English is the translation, so whoever wants to fix, can attach the end of each article comment with the correction.
Because of extensive professional knowledge concentrated on the site, it is also used online ordering, nursery plants. If you are a local or global business, the bottom of the page has a link to review the nature of browsing, including geographic location, and you are welcome to contact me if you find it necessary.
