TASTE OF THE FELLOWSHIP
4 – part young adult virtual SERIES
As the current climate will not allow us to be together how we planned... Let's gather in a new and connective way!
Join the Fellowship team, Becca Heisler and Sasha Hippard, for a 4-part series where we will offer a few of our favorite classes from the Fellowship. Though we cannot meet on the farm this summer, we still get the chance to learn and make some magic together.
We’ll meet every Thursday, May 21 – June 11.
“ This Fellowship changed my life. It gave me the tools to better understand myself, to make change in the world, and to create the life I want to live. ”
Becca Kagan, Summer 2016
TASTE OF THE FELLOWSHIP SERIES
Join us for all four classes, or pick and choose whatever strikes your fancy! Accessible to learners with all levels of Jewish and agricultural knowledge. These programs will take place over Zoom.
Jewish Agricultural Traditions: Ancient Roots & Modern Applications
May 21 | 5:00 – 6:30 PM PST
Through discussion and text study, we will give an overview of Jewish agricultural practices, from their ancient roots to their modern application, helping us understand the kind of society these practices were intended to create.
Hitbodedut: A Jewish Practice for Connecting to Place
MAY 28 | 4:00 – 5:30 PM PST *
* This class is earlier due to the holiday of Shavuot
Hitbodedut means making oneself alone. This practice was popularized by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, a forefather of the Hasidic movement, and his students. He taught that this was a practice of our ancestors, and that the best place for hitbodedut is in the forests or fields.
During this time of shelter-in-place, we’ll explore together the question of what it means to connect to a place. We’ll learn tools and practices for awareness, intention, and curiosity.
How to Craft Shabbat Ritual: Making Meaning In Cycles of Time
JUNE 4 | 5:00 – 6:30 PM PST
Together we’ll dive into the basics of Shabbat, and then we’ll bring them to life!
We will start with a few simple questions:
- What is Shabbat?
- Why is it practiced?
- How is it celebrated?
- What makes this day special or meaningful?
- How have Shabbat practices changed over time?
Then, we’ll take a look inward & spend some time exploring how to create our own Shabbat practices. Please have a journal or paper on hand.
Farming From Home!
JUNE 11 | 5:00 – 6:30 PM PST
The Farm might be closed to visitors these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn some fundamentals from home! Whether you live in an apartment, house, or houseboat, you will learn skills to support growing your own food and reusing kitchen waste.
In this class we will cover:
- Planting from seed
- Planting from food scraps
- How to use food scraps to support nutritious and healthy soil
- The making of rich and tasty vegan broth (bonus)
