3 Combining Tourism and Welfare Our child, Tomer, is autistic, and like many other parents of disabled children, we put years of effort, treatments, teaching, caring and loving. All that is being made with the purpose that Tomer will be able to function in well our society. Unfortunately, Tomer, like many of his friends, will always need our constant support, love and protection. Despite that, in Israel, all the therapeutic programs are designate for kids up to the age of 21. That forces lots of disabled adults like Tomer to stay home, isolated, or to take part in other programs, which are similar to close psychiatric units. The situation is harder in the outlying areas: Where there are limited sources, and its habitants have partial ability to finance other solutions.

4 Combining Tourism and Welfare We want to create such a place for those adults, a working place within our society: An ecological resort that will provide jobs for the disabled. Tomer's farm will be self sustained and productive place, and over the course of years will create more jobs and opportunities for the disabled people. We strongly believe that economy can be combined with welfare, and a place like Tomer's farm, can be bliss for the disabled people: A unique opportunity to integrate, work and contribute to the society, and at the same time to get the care and love they need.

12 What is Underground Building? U nderground building is a type of geometric building. The structures are covered with soil. On that soil we grow vegetation and trees, which make the structures invisibles (from above). The soil also used as isolation material and by that we're saving energy.
