queer Jewish chicken farm & cultural organizing project

Join us for land-based gatherings for Shabbat & Jewish holidays, community work days on the farm and opportunities to learn and study together. 

Our Judaism is old, new and queer. It is co-created, emergent, land-based, rooted in tradition and led by our values of a more just and beautiful world. We are of Ashkenazi descent and seek to create space for Jews of all lineages and traditions.

Tamuz Work Day

This growing season, join Linke Fligl for a day on the land in prayer, song, farm work and learning for one or more of our monthly Rosh Chodesh community work days. Please RSVP!

The Jewish calendar is lunar, guided and marked by the cycles of the moon. In Hebrew, rosh means "head" or "start," and chodesh means "moon" or "month." Rosh Chodesh is an ancient holiday marking the beginning of a new moon cycle, a new Jewish month, an opportunity to return to our origin story in the moon, the earth, and the struggle for justice and liberation in solidarity with all peoples.

We invite you to join us for Rosh Chodesh to celebrate the renewal of another cycle by tending seeds, soil and soul. Come in your favorite work clothes and muck boots, ready to get dirty.

All are welcome! Jewish or not Jewish, queer or not queer, young, old, & everywhere in between. There is currently no childcare provided, but we welcome families and young children.

ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION:

Please let us know your physical access needs so we can accommodate you as best as we can.

Location: Linke Fligl is on a majestic 7 acre field located on occupied Schagticoke territory that is tended by WILDSEED*, tucked in a valley between two mountain ranges. Please note that this is an outdoor event. It may be cold and there may be rain. Bring sunscreen and bug protection, and anything you need to make yourself comfortable.

Physical: The road down to the main gathering space is bumpy and unpaved but drivable with most vehicles.  Once down the hill, the land is fairly flat. The kitchen structure provides shade. Our only indoor space is our converted bus. The bus is not temperature controlled, but is a warmer wind-protected space in cold months. We also have benches, chairs and a few tables for those who need it. Please let us know if you have needs around this set up.

Bathrooms: There is a compost toilet up a hill, and a second compost toilet by the tent platforms on flatter ground.

Scents: This will be a scent & chemical reduced space. You are welcome to bring bug spray and sunscreen as needed, and we ask that folks apply outside of the kitchen and main program areas.

Ticks: Ticks are prevalent here, as they are most everywhere in this region.  One precaution we take is to keep the grass short, as ticks love tall grass.  We suggest wearing closed toed shoes, high socks with pants tucked in, checking for ticks daily, and wearing repellent, which we will provide.

Please RSVP! & email oy@linkefligl.com with questions or to inquire about rideshare and train pick ups.

Sliding scale suggested donation: $0-$36
10% of all Linke Fligl sales and program donations go to Schagticoke First Nations**.

Havdallah Vigil for Poway Synagogue: Moving from Grief to Resilience through Song

Our hearts break with the loved ones and communities of those lost or injured in the recent shooting at Poway Synagogue in California, alongside so many other recent losses to violence in places of faith due to racism, islamophobia and antisemitism.

We'll gather at the close of Shabbat to find strength in togetherness and solidarity, using song, prayer and reflection to ground ourselves, move through fear and send our voices out into the world.

Nisan Work Day

This growing season, join Linke Fligl for a day on the land in prayer, song, farm work and learning for one or more of our monthly Rosh Chodesh community work days.

Our season begins in the Jewish month of Nisan, one of the four Jewish new years. Nisan marks the anniversary of the founding of the Jewish people, beginning Jewish resistance to Egyptian enslavement and celebrating a moment in time of our liberation as a people. At Linke Fligl, our season begins in Nisan as a way to honor our continued struggles and the struggles of all oppressed peoples towards liberation, and serendipitously because in this corner of the diaspora, the farm season begins in Nisan.

The Jewish calendar is lunar, guided and marked by the cycles of the moon. In Hebrew, rosh means "head" or "start," and chodesh means "moon" or "month." Rosh Chodesh is an ancient holiday marking the beginning of a new moon cycle, a new Jewish month, an opportunity to return to our origin story in the moon, the earth, and the struggle for justice and liberation in solidarity with all peoples.

We invite you to join us for Rosh Chodesh to celebrate the renewal of another cycle by tending seeds, soil and soul. Come in your favorite work clothes and muck boots, ready to get dirty.

All are welcome! Jewish or not Jewish, queer or not queer, young, old, & everywhere in between. There is currently no childcare provided, but we welcome families and young children. Please RSVP!
