Educational Gardens

We are building a network of Jewish educational gardens and sustainable food system initiatives in the Greater Boston area. As a part of that, we are tracking the produce grown by the greater Boston Jewish community to aid hunger relief efforts. As we work to create a more just food system on a local level, keeping track of our efforts will enable us to report to others our impact and assess how we might best be making change. Please be in touch if you are involved with a garden or sustainability project we should include in our network!
