Migvan (Hebrew: מגוון‎, lit. Colourful) is a small urban kibbutz located in the city of Sderot in the northwestern Negev desert in Israel.[1]

The kibbutz was founded in 1987, and the original six members of the group have expanded to 60 members. It is a mixed model of the urban kibbutz (collective economy, culture, and weekly meetings) with private homes
