GrowTorah will be presenting on various topics in Experiential Jewish Education.
Join us for a fun-filled morning of family gardening, Torah learning, vegetable snacking, DIY planters and more at SAR's rooftop Gan Ilan.
Rotate through six educational stations, grab a sweet treat from our ice cream truck, quench your thirst from our lemonade stand, take home your own planting creation, and sample edibles from our very own Gan Ilan presented by "The Musket Club".
GrowTorah will be marching with “Nature Israel” or ASPNI, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel- Israel’s oldest and leading environmental NGO, as it marches for the first time, in unison with several other Jewish Environmental Organizations, including Canfei Nesharim: Sustainable living inspired by Torah & the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL). We will march in unity as a show of solidarity with Israel and its natural resources.
GrowTorah will be joining the Idea School Institute at the MakerXpo. We'll be composting food waste in our Worm Bin, and hosting a DIY upcycling station. Come by our station to upcycle your "trash", and think creatively about improving your personal impact on the earth.
Drop by and dig in with your family for a fun gardening workshop at the Massin home. We'll plant spring crops, tend the compost, learn some Torah, and share Brachot over yummy garden-themed beverages.
There is no fee, but donations are graciously accepted via our website (growtorah.org/donate), or by check.
We look forward to planting with you!
