Corey Mikami memorial planting

On the Jewish holiday of Tu BiShvat, the “New Year of the Trees”, we gathered at the Arava Institute’s Experimental Orchards/Shelter Garden to plant plants in memory of Corey Mikami, a 1998-1999  alum of the Institute who sadly passed away in November 2017.

The modest and meaningful ceremony in the Middle Eastern Medicinal Plants section was held with representatives of Corey Mikami’s family, Julie and Yitzhak Auerbach, and a number of Arava Institute staff members. Dr. Elaine Solowey, Director of the Center for Sustainable Agriculture, remembered Corey fondly as “a very aware person who loved the trees”.

May his memory be a blessing.
