גן זוסיה
גן זוסיה ניטע בט"ו בשבט ת"ש (1940) לזכרו של השומר זוסיה שחורי.
זוסיה, ממפקדי "ההגנה", ליווה ואימן את ראשוני המתיישבים בעמק חפר. הוא נהרג בי"ט בתמוז תרצ"ח (18.7.1938) בתאונת דרכים, ליד קיבוץ מעברות. במכוניתו היה נשק חבוי שנועד למגיני עמק חפר.
חברי המושב החליטו להנציח את זכרו בגן הזה, שתוכנן על ידי אדריכל הנוף אברהם קרוון. בגן נשתלו, בין השאר, עצים מיוחדים כגון: אקליפטוס לימוני וברוש גדול הפירות.

Zosia Garden
Zosia Garden was planted on Tu B’Shvat 1940 in memory of Hashomer Zusia Shchori.
Zosia, one of the commanders of the Haganah, accompanied and trained the first settlers in the Hefer Valley. He was killed on July 18, 1938, in a car accident, near Kibbutz Maabarot. In his car was a hidden weapon intended for the defenders of the Hefer Valley.
The members of the moshav decided to commemorate his memory in this garden, designed by landscape architect Avraham Karavan. In the garden, among other things, special trees were planted, such as the lemon eucalyptus (lemon-scented gum) and Monterey cypress.
