Itamar welcomed the visit of the Ketting family from the Netherlands.IMG_9619 They enjoyed a special tour of the community and even got to visit one of Itamar’s remote farms overlooking the Jordan valley. This farm specializes in growing Peony flowers for export. These flowers are not only beautiful IMG_9622IMG_9624but also have tremendous healing abilities testified by the name Peony which comes from the Greek god of medicine.  Floor and Roelie Ketting – living in the flower capital of the world, were really amazed to see these beautiful flowers growing on Itamar soil.
