Introducing the one, the only, the blog you have been waiting for…..
Welcome to the Rodef Shalom Edible Garden Blog!!!!
What, you say you haven’t heard of us and you have no idea what an Edible Garden is, are you kidding? I thought for sure everyone knew, alright here it is from the beginning.
A very civic minded member of Rodef Shalom Congregation applied for, and Rodef Shalom Congregation was awarded, a grant from the Union of Reform Judaism to create and build an edible garden. The garden will be planted in containers on the property of Rodef Shalom Synagogue in Shadyside. Plantings will include edible plants, fruits and nuts.
The garden’s goal is to provide a Jewish educational program for preschool children, religious school children and interested congregants as part of a Life Long Learning Program. Additionally, it will aim to highlight the Jewish value of healthy and sustainable food choices and to strengthen the traditional Jewish connection between food and social responsibility.
The containers have been purchased, the plants selected, we await the official arrival of spring so that we can get planting!! Check back with us often, we will provide updates regarding planting dates and pictures! Better yet, subscribe to the blog and receive new posts in your email.
Comments are welcome, remember we are a family blog, the only dirt we want here is well, the real stuff !!
