In 1908, the Kinneret Courtyard farm was established next to the Moshava Kinneret. During the period of the Second Aliyah (1904-1914), the Agricultural Training Courtyard served as an agricultural and social laboratory, with the first pioneers coming here and it serving as the birthplace of social experimentation with ideas such as "Kvutza" (one such example being Degania), "Kibbutz" (an example being Ein Harod) and "Moshav" (for example Nahalal) being coined here.
The feminist revolution also played a role in the Kinneret Courtyard which was home to the "Chavat Ha'almot," a women's training farm. The first agricultural schools were also started here. The site was renovated and restored and one can take part today in guided tours that acquaint one with the heroes of the time and the great ideas of the pioneers who established the country.
