Getting Our Hands Dirty

Gardening has always been something that feeds my soul. There are such miracles in the garden!

  • Seeds that have all the encoded information to produce a particular plant and...more seeds!
  • Tendrils on climbing plants that reach from side to side looking for support on their journey upward.
  • Flowers that turn to face the sun as it travels across the sky.
Watching our friend, Rhonda, getting her hands dirty planting lettuce, was one such miracle today. "It's the first time I've ever planted anything", she shared with us, with joy and awe on her face.

This is what the teaching garden was built for. So folks young and old could experience the wonder of the earth and the plants and food that it produces. G-d creates and people partner with creation and miracles happen.

Come visit the Shalom Community Teaching Garden.
