Shdemama is an intentional community and dance space in the center of Israel. We live on a beautiful slice of land between orange orchards and olive groves. We use the fertile soil to grow some of our food and develop a food forest based on permaculture principles. We spend our days building, dreaming, practicing yoga, meditation, contact dance, and sharing meals. We have created a large straw bale building,communal kitchen, two original yurts, and a geodesic dome where we all come together to share our passions and skills. We are about an hour by bus from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. See you soon!

Mud Hut

Food included
This is a large straw bale structure that goes by the name 'The Mud Hut'. It is our communal space for events and daily activities. At night it can host many sleepers. There is a rocket stove and many mattresses and blankets to share. We have a suggested donation of 30 Shekels a day to share in buying fresh fruits, veggies, grains, tchina, ect. It also covers our electricity, water, space and all living costs.
