Eretz Carmel

Eretz Carmel began in 2004 by turning organic garbage into high quality compost, called Humus, in an ecological process using red worms; it wasthe first time this method was implemented in Israel. Since joining the IVN Social Entrepreneur Fellowship Program in 2004, Eretz Carmel has become a huge success. The project promotes environmental responsibility through active citizenship.

Today Eretz Carmel sustains itself from revenues derived from the services it renders to the local municipalities as well as from the sale of the compost it produces.
