A Garden with No Owners: Growing and Sharing During the Shmita Year
April 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
While, technically, the agricultural stipulations for Shmita year practice only apply in the land of Israel, there is a growing community of Jewish gardeners and farmers living outside of Israel electing to honor the Shmita cycle and Shmita teachings in a variety of creative ways. In this session, Rabbi Jacob Fine will highlight some of the core Shmita teachings that might guide how a gardener chooses to relate differently to their garden during the Shmita year. Drawing on these teachings, Jacob will also lead a discussion of some specific, practical ideas for Shmita observance in the garden and at home. (While this session will be geared towards gardeners, the principles could apply to everyone).

This is part of Shmita Project Northwest‘s distinguished speaker series.
