The Jordan Valley is in the headlines daily. Eve Harow takes us behind the scenes to Guy Erlich, one of many hardworking farmers in this ‘disputed’ region, who surprised himself by becoming a world expert on the Temple incense mix and medicinal plants of the ancient world. Judean balsam/Tzori/Balm of Gilead/Afarsimon oil- pick your name, this aromatic bush was sought after by Cleopatra and fought over by Babylonian and Roman kings alike, just to name a few conquerors from over the centuries.

Rejuvenating the agriculture of yore; how cool is that?
