So I may have mentioned once or twice that I have a vague fondness (read: uncontrollable obsession) for gardening. When I heard about the Gan Project, I was understandably excited. Founded in 2010 in Chicago, the Gan Project sought to host discussions, workshops, and provide Jewish environmental education. They also cultivate an educational community garden and donate some of the produce to local food pantries. If I were in Chicago, I’d be sure to go to their Garlic Fest 5773. Check out their variety of programs, from opportunities for B’nai Mitzvah and day school projects to a wide range of urban homesteading workshops. Whether you want to gain a deeper understanding of the Torah through agriculture or learn how to make a tasty dill pickle, it seems like there’s a little something for everyone.
Follow the Gan project on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with their latest news and events. If you’re in Chicago, check them out!
