The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens
The Botanical Gardens in Jerusalem are a piece of green heaven in the urban landscape of Jerusalem. The gardens range across 120 acres, where visitors are welcomed to walk about and admire Israel's largest collection of plants and an exhibit of colorful and fragrant year-round blooms, simulating flora from different areas around the world: Europe, South Africa, The Mediterranean Basin, Australia, North America and Central Asia.
The Gardens are divided into various areas, each presenting different breeds and various kinds of flora. The Botanical Gardens return many of the species into the ecological system, and are distributed around the country for agriculture, forestry and gardening uses.
The garden is a home and shelter for over 200 kinds of endangered plants, grown in the gardens specifically in order to return them to their natural habitat.
The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens are located near the Hebrew University Edmond J. Safra Campus in Givat Ram Hebrew University, and it hosts various events, among which are the Sakura festival, The Bonsai Conference, gardening exhibitions, summer camps for children, The Chocolate Festival, music concerts, guided tours and family activities
