Planting, growing, and harvesting are fundamental to Judaism. Agriculture ties Jews to the seasons and to the land, through holidays and life cycle events. In this presentation, you’ll learn about connections between Judaism and fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, trees, shrubs, and more.

Nan will talk about traditions and practices that easily translate to home gardens. She will discuss how easy it is to grow most, if not all, of the plants mentioned in the Torah and many more that have come to play a role in the traditions of more modern times. Nan will even talk about some ancient traditions that deserve to be revived.

Optional demonstration with live plants.
