Students from Binyamina’s three elementary schools toured the quarry. During the visits the students learned about the history of the site, its importance to the history of the settlement, and the environmental aspects associated with the site. On one of the tours, the students were accompanied by people whose parents worked at the quarry. They shared their memories and described the quarry as home.
Following the tour, the students participated in Wish-list Workshops, in which they were asked to describe their wishes for the future of the site using artistic methods. Their artwork can be seen here.
The community at large was invited to write their wishes on a large sign that was displayed at the Binyamina Parade.
Later, the community was invited to a tour of the quarry led by Haim Disatnik, who worked at the quarry for over 40 years, and Tally Tuch, an architect who works for The Quarry Rehabilitation Fund. The tour was attended by many residents and interested parties, including members of the Society for the Preservation and Restoration of Binyamina, who consider the quarry a national heritage site.
