היער הקטן

[תמונה: היער הקטן]

היער הקטן הוא חלק שנותר מיערות השרון, עצי האקליפטוס בחורשה ניטעו עוד לפני הקמת המושבה. כל השטח היה מכוסה ביצה במשך חודשי החורף והאביב. ילדי המושבה וצעיריה נהגו להשתעשע בין העצים בימי היובש ובהשטת "רפסודות" במי הביצה. בשנים 1923-1928 גידלו במושבה טבק ומי הביצה הועברו בתעלות עץ להשקיית שיחי הטבק. כבר בשנות ה-30 הוחל בניקוז מי הביצה בתעלות פתוחות לעבר אפיק הפולג. במשך השנים התפתחה הסביבה, ניבנו בתים מסביב לחורשה והותקנה מערכת תיעול יעילה. כיום משמשת החורשה אתר משחקים, גן פסלים ומקום לארועי תרבות בעונת הקיץ.

The small forest

[Image: The small Forest]

The small forest is part of the Sharon forest, the eucalyptus trees in the grove were planted even before the settlement was established. The whole area was covered with wetland during the winter and spring months. The colony’s children and their youngsters used to play in the trees during the dry days and flush "rafts" in the swampy water. From 1923 to 1928, they raised tobacco in the colony and the swamp water was transferred in wooden trenches to irrigate the tobacco bushes. Already in the 1930s, the drainage of the marsh water was started in open ditches towards the ravine. Over the years, the environment has evolved, houses have been built around the grove and an efficient channel system has been installed. Today the grove serves as a playground, a sculpture garden and a place for cultural events during the summer season.
