Everybody Grows Community Garden
1340 Rhode Island Ave NE
Washington, DC 20018
Join other Edlavitch DCJCC families to get our hands dirty and learn about food
access with Everybody Grows, an organization that inspires people to grow their
own food in home gardens. We will compost, weed, plant, and harvest.
Afterwards, we will learn about food waste and food accessibility with Darya
Watnick, Director of Jewish Engagement at the EDCJCC, and Jewish Outdoor,
Food/Farming, and Environmental Education Fellow with Hazon.
We will be meeting at an Everybody Grows Community Garden at the Engine 26 Fire Station in the NE.
Since this program falls on the Sunday between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur we will
also be honoring tashlich, the casting away of negativities, with an
activity to reflect on our hopes for ourselves, our families, and our
communities in the coming year.
A light vegetarian lunch will be provided.
This program is geared towards children ages 3 and up.
This program is sponsored by the Gendler Grapevine Project:
Grapevine Project is a six-year initiative that promotes activities within
the Jewish and interfaith communities that honor and support the values
affirmed by Rabbi Everett Gendler. The Project facilitates the creation of
effective, innovative, and replicable programs that celebrate the deep
connections between Jewish traditions, social justice and the environment, helping
others transform their words and ideas into activities that will make a
difference not only in their own lives but also for those around them.
Co-presented with the Morris Cafritz
Center for Community Service, and GLOE Youth & Family – a project of The
Kurlander Program for GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement (GLOE) at the Edlavitch
