Kannot (Hebrew: כַּנּוֹת, eng. Seedlings) is an educational institution and youth village in central Israel. Located near Gedera, it falls under the jurisdiction of Be'er Tuvia Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 284.

The village was founded in 1952 by the Workers' Council of the Histadrut and belongs to the Na'amat organisation.

It is named after an occasional word, just mentioned once: in the Bible in Psalm 80:16:[1] (God, watch over) "the seedling your right hand has planted".
