With Matthew Kalman
Journalist Matthew Kalman returns to The Book & The Spade to discuss his latest news scoop, the return of Frankincense in Israel. We talked to Matthew about his interview with Dr. Elaine Soloway, of the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. She is the botanist who we have discussed several times in recent years for her work in nurturing a 2,000-year old date seed to grow. The date palm tree is now seven years old. But Dr. Soloway has a new project, the first frankincense tree to grow in Israel in 1,500 years.
