The Shtetl Skills workshop series provides city dwellers with practical skills to live more sustainably. Join Jewish Farm School for a two part series on Radical Jewish Wisdom.
Session #1: Shmita Permaculture Design; Tuesday, March 11, 7:30pm-9:30pm
Explore the concepts and values of the Shmita (Sabbatical) year and it's connection to modern day Permaculture. Together we will cover the core Permaculture design principles, learn about their various applications, and examine how Shmita practices can be integrated into contemporary food systems.
No prior experience with Permaculture or Shmita is required.
Taught by JFS Director Nati Passow and Ben Weiss of Susquehanna Permaculture.
Session #2: Shmita Economics & Financial Permaculture; Tuesday, March 18, 7:30pm-9:30pm
In the Shmita (Sabbatical) year we are asked to release all debt and claims of private land ownership. In this class we'll explore the implications of these practices while connecting them to the emerging field of Financial Permaculture and modern examples of community based economic systems.
Participants are encouraged (but not required) to register for both classes.
Taught by JFS Director Nati Passow.
When & Where
Jewish Farm School
The Jewish Farm School is dedicated to teaching about contemporary food and environmental issues through innovative trainings and skill-based Jewish agricultural education. We are driven by traditions of using food and agriculture as tools for social justice and spiritual mindfulness. Through our programs, we address the injustices embedded in today's mainstream food systems and work to create greater access to sustainably grown foods, produced from a consciousness of both ecological and social well being.
