Late Spring in the Kavanah Garden = AWESOME!

With summer just here, we have started harvesting the fruits of our labor! We are also thrilled that the Tikkun Adamah CSA is back at the Kavanah Garden and that 65 families are eating local, organic, fresh vegetables from our friend, Daniel Hoffman.

Seeds Balls, Watering Cans and Native Bees

My, oh my! We are a busy bunch of gardeners and ecologists at the Kavanah Garden. Last week, students and teachers from Robbins Hebrew Academy (Bayview) and Netivot HaTorah came out to help make seed balls, tend to our native bees, weed unwanted plants and of course, water the emerging seedlings.

Enjoy this wonderful photo journey of these awesome students working joyfully with nature at the Garden.

The Garden of Sages features sage plants from around the world with quotes from various sages.
Seed Balls are awesome!

We love getting our hands dirty!

Planting is fun!
