Eco-Experience participants join our staff in our daily hands-on work, which can include organic gardening, building with mud or maintaining our Nature Reserve, and receive introductory lessons in Permaculture practices and technologies.

Want to experience our unique ecological education programs but don’t have the time available for the Green Apprenticeship?

Eco-Experience offers a you a hands-on opportunity to discover the process involved with the design, building and management of sustainable communities. Come for just one week, or stay as long as you choose. 

Practical skills are developed through working with the CfCE  in our tasks and projects which can include organic gardening, natural building projects, landscaping and maintaining the Lotan Nature and Migratory Bird Reserve. Work experience is complemented by theoretical lessons including introductions to ecological design, renewable energy, organic gardening, permaculture and sustainability.


Throughout the week, Eco Experience participants are encouraged to take part in cultural events on the Kibbutz and in the region. Occasionally there are opportunities to join tours to local attractions, neighboring Kibbutzim, other ecological projects in the area and hikes in the region.

The Kibbutz has a pub on Friday nights, a pool and football pitch. Buses run throughout the day from Kibbutz Lotan to the city of Eilat and its coral reef filled with tropical marine life.
