Join us at this month’s Jews of Color led and centered Community Farm Day as we learn and explore the edges of earth based spirituality through prayer, song, farm work and learning in honor of the new month of Av. Please RSVP here to join! Jews of Color led, all are welcome.
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 to celebrate the renewal of another cycle by tending seeds, soil and soul.
As a diasporic Jewish people, we don’t have a singular narrative of relationship to land. As a community of many stories, descendants of immigrants, settlers, survivors of the transatlantic slave trade, refugees and native communities, the losses and gifts we carry are different depending on where we come from. How space is held makes a difference in how space is accessed. Our hope with this farm day is to hold space for a greater breadth of what it means to relate to land as Jews, and that through that can come connection and healing.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to inquire about rideshare and train pick ups.
