is a very special tree- it has roots that can reach 70 meters (about 210 feet!) into the earth. One of the oldest trees on this planet, it is called "the tree of life" in its native Morocco. It has very specific cultivation needs that are identical with our conditions here in the town of Mitzpe Ramon in the Negev desert.
Besides being a great ecological boon, this tree has been only recently discovered by the West and the market prices reflect the value of its product: precious argan oil.
We look forward with great joy to not only plant this tree here in the Negev desert but also be part of the unfolding of this tree's potential as we discover more uses for the healthful oil and other parts of the tree.
