On the sign:
סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל
סמל מועצה אזורית עמק הירדן
סמל הפלמ"ח

חורשת הפלמ"ח
החורשה ניטעה בראשית שנות השלושים ע"י חברת פיק"א, שהאדמה היתה בבעלותה.
בחורשה זו נוסדה בקיץ 1941 פלוגה א’ של הפלמ"ח, שאנשיה באו כמתנדבים מישובי הגליל והעמקים.
מכאן יצאו אנשי הפלמ"ח למסעות ברחבי הגליל ולכאן שבו. כאן נערכו שיחות ודיונים, חלקם סביב למדורה, שעיצבו את דרך הפלמ"ח מראשיתו.
יגאל אלון, מפקדה הראשון של פלוגה א’, חבר קיבוץ גינוסר ולימים מפקד הפלמ’’ח, נהג לארח כאן את כנס האביב השנתי, בהשתתפות אלפי ערבים ויהודים.

Symbol of the Jordan Valley Regional Council
The Palmach symbol

The Palmach grove
The grove was planted in the early 1930s by the PIKA company, which owned the land.
In the summer of 1941, Company A of the Palmach was founded, whose men came as volunteers from the Galilee and the valleys.
From here the Palmach men set out on journeys throughout the Galilee and here again. Talks and discussions were held here, some around the campfire, which shaped the Palmach road from its inception.
Yigal Alon, the first commander of Company A, a member of Kibbutz Ginosar and later the commander of the Palmach, used to host the annual spring conference here, attended by thousands of Arabs and Jews.
