We had a successful 2022 season!

This summer we grew potatoes, cabbage, flowers, native pollinator plants, cucumbers, and more! Our Garden Manager and Educator Nina Levison hosted a Teen Internship through the Broh Scholarship fund with two high school students, tending the garden, harvesting herbs and plants, putting up fencing and hosting drop-in garden hours on Sunday morning. They also worked with congregant Matt Bertuzzi to build a shed on site to hold garden tools!

This Fall the gardel will be host to B'Yachad religious educational programs as well as our fall Harvest Festival on Oct 15. We hope to see you in the garden!

Meet our Garden Manager and Educator

Nina Levison (she/they)

Nina Levison comes to us with a decade of farm and garden experience. She currently serves as our Sinai Temple Religious School Pre-K teacher and has spent  the year growing alongside seven incredible 3-5 year olds. Nina's passion for growing things began when they were young: she grew up on a wonderfully wild half-acre of garden and orchard land her dad tended to. They can't wait to create a cultural garden space at Sinai Temple and continue to get to know the families and communities connected to it in the this coming year. 

About the Garden

This year, our Temple will create an educational garden for young people and adults alike that will host both Jewish agricultural learning and experiential programming. This garden will be a Sinai Temple project and available for use by the larger community, including the Religious School (soon to be B'Yachad).

The garden will engage students and adults with the synagogue land in a new way - breaking ground to grow edible crops; cultivating seeds and watching them grow; learning about life cycles and seasons; and harvesting culturally relevant crops that correlate to our Jewish calendar and holidays. In this way, the garden will be connecting our community to our biblical agricultural past and present day cultural traditions.
