About Ancient Roots Israel

Ancient Roots Israel is an endeavour to strengthen the herbal community in Israel and between Israel and herbalists from all over the world. This exciting community effort is led by Israeli English-speaking herbalists with the help of our herbalist friends abroad.

Our premiere conference was February, 9-11, 2020, coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Tu Bishvat (“the birthday/new year of the trees”) and was held at Ana Poriya, a resort close to the sea of Galilee in the north-west of Israel. It was a huge success with more than 70 participants from Israel and many other countries.

By popular request, we will do it again! Ancient Roots Israel 2021 will take place towards the end of January 2021. Like 2020, the conference will be a two- and-a half-day event and consist of both formal lectures, smaller break out workshops and herb walks, and maybe even the occasional surprise! 

Ancient Roots Israel will create quality herbal program in English for English speaking herbalists at home and abroad and expose the beauty of our country and culture’s herbal traditions to the rest of the world.
