Cornfields in Hod Hasharon: A New Maze and Pickings
Updated: May 6, 2020
Someone, was busy during the holidays sowing and growing a new maze in the heart of a magical cornfield on the outskirts of Hod Hasharon. I went with a friend and our two twelve and one seven year-old children. Details were provided courtesy of Goodnews PR.
During October and November every Saturday, starting from October 13th, the new initiative "Klahim Umevohim" (i.e. corn cobs and mazes) will be held, allowing families to experience nature in a special fun way via a maze made entirely of corn plants and some self-harvesting action.
Children are invited to experience the renewed connection to nature in the giant corn labyrinth where they will face tasks and trivia details through action and explanatory signs about the species of corn, its growth process and other interesting facts. In addition to the maze trivia, the complex includes a shaded sitting area with a few original corn games, which we also enjoyed, water taps and toilets.
Next to the labyrinth there is a sweet corn picking field, sown with the "Sentinel" species of Hazera company. Hazera, is a global leader in the cultivation, production and marketing of vegetable seeds and field crops. The "Sentinel" species of Hazera, offers consumers a new genre of corn, which is super sweet, high quality, crispy and tasty. The corn, developed by HM CLAUSE, a sister company of Hazera for several years, has a strong yellow color as well as a long shelf life, suitable for growing in all seasons and most importantly, tastes great.
Uri Weiss and Nir Korkat Agronomist Graduates of the Faculty of Agriculture established the "Klachim Umevohim" project in order to connect children with nature and agriculture. The connection, Uri and Nir hope, will be created with the help of a huge maze made entirely of corn plants, planted and carefully treated from the beginning of August.
