Golda Second Hand - 20 Bnei Binyamin, Herzliya,
Gan Golda will consist of three main elements: a community garden, an event space, and a textile donation center. It will be created on the property of Golda Second Hand, a consignment shop located on 20 Bnei Binyamin, Herzliya. 🌱
The shop is housed in a small, 1920s home built by some of the original settlers in Herzliya. Thus, the house and the property itself is considered a historical site and no other buildings are allowed to be built there.
Unfortunately, the nearly 1,700 sqm of land have been neglected for many years. This historic plot could easily transition from an eyesore to a source of beauty, but this is only a small part of the untapped potential of the site.
With Golda Second Hand already invested in promoting sustainable habits, together with the perfect alignment of interests and stakeholders in the Herzliya community, a tremendous opportunity exists to do something even more impactful.
Development of Gan Golda will begin on October 16th with the help from clubs and individual students from the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya. On this day, we hope to bring together about 30-40 people from the IDC community, both Israeli and international, who will lay the groundwork for the space by leveling and filling holes in the ground, removing the last piles of trash, and trimming back overgrown trees.
You are invited to be part of bringing new life, character and utility to this valuable and historical space, and helping turn it into a place where our community can live, grow, and build together!
The event wil take place at Golda Second Hand, 20 Bnei Binyamin Herzliya, from 14:00-18:00.
Tamir Manobella, Founder and CEO of House Healing Tel Aviv, will be volunteering his time and expertise to oversee this day and delegate work to all of the students attending.
Or Eldad, President of the IDC Entrepreneurship Club, and Itay Azogui, President of the GreenBiz Club have also taken on major roles in coordinating, marketing, and leading not only this day, but also the overall Gan Golda development and launch. As prominent leaders on campus, both Or and Itay are working to rally volunteers from the IDC community, find sponsors, and organize the development days.
This phase would also not be possible without our generous partner, Peer Plants, who will be lending us all the tools needed to lay the groundwork, including shovels, hoes, wheelbarrows, and gloves!
