Hi, Charli (again...),
Sorry, everyone, I hit the wrong button.
Anyway, the group you might contact is the Jewish and
Arab village Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam,
http://nswas.com, in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem.
As well as other Israelis working for peace.
Another suggestion is to find your market gardeners
where you are. My guess is that they are out there,
somewhere in the city. They will know your best
varieties and seasonal patterns.
Needless to say, your biggest technical problem will
probably be water. The following site has some useful
ideas on gray water reuse (and they might be allies):
FAO has some useful documents, too. 'Sunken' beds and
unglazed pot appropriate technologies are an option,
but you have to be very careful about salt build up.
But first you need the water to begin with.
Good luck! Sounds like a greatg project.
