Operation Lupine

Lupine in a field

6000 lupine seeds will be sown in the coming weeks in our region, thanks to a unique regional collaboration to save this rare plant.

This week ushered in the sowing phase of a regional project to save the European yellow lupine. In recent months, The Partnership for Regional Sustainability, together with Ramat Hanadiv and the regional community, has initiated a unique project to save this rare plant in our region.

The European yellow lupine is a beautiful, rare and endangered plant. In May of this year, a coordinated lupine pod collection took place in agricultural fields around Binyamina. The pods were transferred to Ramat Hanadiv, where thousands of seeds were extracted from them, and then counted and distributed. The seeds were transferred to schools that work with the therapeutic garden at Ramat Hanadiv, to the wildflower project in Binyamina and to the Society for Protection of Nature in Pardes-Hana, and were stored until the arrival of the sowing season, before the first rains. This week, the lupine sowing phase began with great excitement; it will continue through next week as well.

Dr Racheli Schwartz-Tzachor, director of the project on behalf of Ramat Hanadiv, explained that in order to achieve optimal establishment success of the plants in the new soil, the seeds were scarified one by one with sandpaper. This action creates mechanical wear of the seeds and resembles the chemical wear that they experience in an animal’s gut. The scarification is supposed to contribute to improved germination.

Lior Bentor, who is accompanying the project on behalf of The Partnership for Regional Sustainability, emphasized that the process does not end with sowing. He said that the school children who participated in the sowing project will return to the sown area and continue to monitor the germination, flowering and continuity of the lupine population.

According to Bentor, the project succeeded thanks to the participation of many organizations in the community and education sectors, including the Partnership’s wildflower project in Binyamina, the children of Ayana afterschool care and Amirim elementary school, the Society for the Protection of Nature, and the staff of the therapeutic garden at Ramat Hanadiv. And of course, none of this would have happened without the cooperation of the agricultural committee of Binyamina Givat-Ada, headed by Amos Weil, and Baruch Pivin, owner of the land from which the seeds were collected.
