CHICAGO, IL -- The Gan Project, a Jewish social and environmental justice organization, is pleased to announce their first annual Earth Day Mitzvah Mania. The Gan Project grows organic, heirloom produce on its quarter acre Homestead located in West Rogers Park, Chicago. Of that produce, half is gleaned by the community, in accordance with the ancient agricultural practices outlined in the Torah, and half is donated to the ARK food pantry.
The majority of activities are suited for adults and children over the age of 12. Families with children under the age of 12 are invited to plant raspberry bushes during the morning work session, beginning at 9:30am, and stay for the BYOPL. Pre-registration is required for raspberry bush planting and is limited to the first 10 families that register.
Adults can also attend as a Staff Volunteers: sign up for a minimum 2.5 hour shift between 7:30am-8:00pm to help with set up, registration, logistics, clean up, and meal support. Contact email@example.com for more information or to sign up.
To support the Gan Project’s work, a suggested donation of $18 or an in-kind donation of a garden tool is requested. Everyone is welcome, regardless of ability to donate. Please see the list of requested items on the registration page for more information.
As a social and environmental justice organization, The Gan Project nourishes, protects and celebrates Jewish life through the cultivation of soil and community. The organization is building a regenerative food system that enlivens Jewish tradition, embodies Jewish values and immerses the community in a rich educational and cultural experience.
