Ramat Gan city symbol The smart garden
"Abraham’s Garden is a smart garden." This expression was uttered by the agronomist Oded Yaffe, that nature, gardens and trees are his closest "friends". Man and land.
One does not have to be an agronomist to notice that Richard Kaufman who designed the garden in its initial form was a wise architect, "who looked a hundred years ahead." With the help of a small pencil and a large head, "an ingenious design was made here," says Yaffe. Later, Moshe Kivshani, the city gardener, stamped the stamp that should have been written in the history of the gardens: "The first Palestine garden."
We do not refer to the breathtaking scenery, the coveted corners of the garden, the stepping stones, the winding paths or the history of the place, which also of course indicate careful planning. The reference is solely to the unique and diverse vegetation that grew in the garden.
Hundreds of plant species that sprouted here decades ago, testify more than anything to the thought of how to turn the garden into a botanical laboratory by choosing and educating and adapting the trees and shrubs to the topography, environment, elevation and warm climate, regardless of artificial irrigation. Smart and frugal.
The Jerusalem pine, the Canary Island Pine, the cypresses, the olive trees, the Tabor oaks, the eucalyptus, the sycamore and the carob trees are just some of the trees that have grown in the garden over the years. And not only that, the shrubs planted here were also "water-efficient." If we remember that there were basically several water bodies in the garden, the visitor got a sense of optimal connection between nature and the human hand; A combination of scenery, terraced paths, shrubs, trees, lawns and avenue of heroes.
At the eastern end of the garden towards Krinitzi Street, is the community agricultural garden. In recent years, ten community gardens have been established in Ramat Gan. A welcome idea. The garden in Gan Avraham was the first garden (2015). Beyond the educational values, by the very existence and essence of the garden, a friendship and mutual relationship has been created that is spiced with countless spices, smells and colors from nature.
