Trees of Life: A Virtual Tour of Israel’s Forests
January 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm ESTFree
This session will take participants on a virtual trip through Israel to learn about some of the most fascinating and beautiful of the country’s ancient and historic trees. These trees illuminate myriad cultural, religious, and historical aspects of the country and can be found in every corner of the country. We will read some of the folktales associated with these trees and do a writing prompt to begin our own.
Michael Brown is the author of The Jewish Gardening Cookbook, published by Jewish Lights. For the last 20 years or so he has been developing Pitspone Farm, a small suburban farm focused primarily on perennial berries. One of the goals of Pitspone Farm is to explore the small farm experience and show others that the dream of farming and contributing to the food stream is within reach for many of us. With a recent move to hilly northern New Jersey and the purchase of an acre of land “on the side of a mountain,” Michael is delving into permaculture and reforestation with native species.
The session will be recorded and sent to participants. We encourage live attendance for you to get the most out of the experience.
