GrowTorah develops garden-based experiential and environmental Torah education programs for Jewish schools and communal organizations.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
At each Full Partner school GrowTorah builds a garden with the students; and grow herbs, flowers, and vegetables through the growing season. In every 30 minute session in the garden, students work the land and learn lessons anchored in the 4 core Torah values, and related to the weekly parsha. In each school, a GrowTorah Garden Educator spends 3 hours per week teaching, and 1-2 hours/week on garden maintenance.
