Ramat Hanadiv | Cumulative Data for this Year
This number represents the number of people who came to Ramat Hanadiv to enjoy the pleasant, tranquil ambiance of the Memorial Gardens and the Nature Park. A beautiful fusion of restrained, European-style design and Mediterranean plants, the gardens reflect Baron Edmond de Rothschild's legacy of respect and humility.
Goats are seasonal animals whose estrous cycle begins during the summer, when days start growing shorter. Their gestation period lasts about 145 days. The females give birth in late winter or early spring (in Israel, January- March), usually to twins though there are sometimes triplets. The newborns weigh in at about 5 kilo (over 11 lbs). Just a few minutes after birth, the kids stand up and start walking, and within a few hours they are sucking their mothers' milk.
Since the goats at Ramat Hanadiv graze naturally (without any hormonal additives), they stop producing milk during the winter months – about two months before the birthing season – and are in a state of rest. When the kids are born, they are left with their mothers for about two months so they can nurse freely until they're weaned.
The 15-minute film, Beyond the Gardens, tells the intertwined stories of the Rothschild family and Ramat Hanadiv. Screenings take place every half hour in the Visitors Pavilion. Though there is no admission fee, groups are requested to coordinate their visit in advance
The numbers represent the total number of people who visited Ramat Hanadiv's internet site, engaging in at least one activity there. It includes both first-time and returning users. (The data is supplied by Google Analytics.)
Solar energy derived from the sun is an innovative, alternative source of clean energy. Israel has many annual days of sunshine, making it possible to produce solar energy most of the year via photo-voltaic panels. Ramat Hanadiv's solar panels stand on the roof of a building in the service area, and a separate, exterior screen provides real-time information about the system's output.
The red palm weevil is a beetle that attacks many kinds of palms, resulting in their dessication within just a few months. To catch these pests, Ramat Hanadiv installed special traps containing silan (date honey) and pheromones. The weevils are attracted by the smell, then drowned in the liquid.
