With the help of some incredibly talented volunteers, we built a pergola that will serve as the frame for our sukkah during the holiday of Sukkot. During other times of the year, the structure will be converted into an outdoor kitchen area with rain barrels to catch rain water and hanging mesh for drying onions and garlic in the fall
And here is our sukkah! The walls are bed sheets that we dyed using Goldenrod flowers and black walnuts from our field.
SK students from Leo Baeck (North Campus) visited the garden to help us harvest the Atomic Red Carrots that they planted as JK students in the spring! Harvesting turnips!
We hosted our first ever Sukkot Celebration! Over 50 community members joined us to sing, study and enjoy a candle-lit vegetarian potluck dinner together in our sukkah.
With radical gratitude,
Risa Alyson Strauss (Kavanah Garden Program Director)
