KKL-JNF and Darom Adom

The Darom Adom (Scarlet South) Festival is produced by the Shikma Besor Tourism Association in the flowering fields of the northern Negev and takes place during the weekends of February in conjunction with KKL-JNF. The public is invited to enjoy the red carpets of anemones and get acquainted with the natural, historical and recreational sites in the area. KKL-JNF has been involved in the development of the region since before the establishment of the State of Israel, and continues to be a partner of the local residents' initiatives, such as this festival, providing information stations, free excursions and a special march along the red carpets of anemones.
