Help Our Jewish Community GROW This Sunday

This Sunday, the Boulder JCC will be the site of a day of engaging, hands-on workshops for anyone looking for inspiration and resources to start a new garden, or expand an existing garden, at their home or Jewish institution.

Join us for Seed to Table: A Confluence of Gardening, Local Food and Jewish Community on Sunday, March 19, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. for a wide range of excellent workshops:

  • From Sermon to Seed: How Inspiration Leads to Action
  • Designing Jewish Gardens and Landscapes
  • Dirt, Dig, Dirt: The Joy of Gardening with Kids
  • Growing Produce and Medicinal Herbs in Small Spaces
  • Extend the Food Growing Season on the Front Range
  • How to Engage Volunteers and Help Your Garden Blossom
  • Using Your Garden for Jewish Traditions and Holidays
  • Using Ancient Text to Explore our Contemporary Relationship with Flora and Fauna
  • Seed to Classroom: Gardening Education for Your Jewish Community
  • Cooking from the Garden with Mind, Body and Soul
  • Plan Your First Garden

There will also be community networking time and an opportunity to apply for special grants to host garden- or food-related peer-to-peer gatherings from MazelTogether.

You can attend three workshops and have a delicious, catered, kosher lunch featuring local ingredients–all for the price of one or two regular gardening workshops. And those don’t even have the Jewish touch! Come meet like-minded leaders, learn from experts, and get ready to grow!

Early registration is strongly encouraged, but registration is welcome through and including the morning of the event. All the details and registration are here.
