This week in the GrowTorah garden, students and Farmer Spence discussed one of Moshe’s lessons to Bnei Yisrael from Parshat Ha’azinu. Moshe reminds us to be grateful to Hashem for what we have in Eretz Yisrael. Students applied that lesson to their garden. After exploring what the garden had to offer, students learned that they can be grateful for the summer crops for what they have produced, and planted new seeds in their place. Classes discovered that gratitude to the summer plants can extend through the fall and winter when their roots can still help the soil and their nutrients can be transferred to the compost. Students also harvested more tomatoes for tzedaka to donate at the JCFS Corner Market Food Pantry, and were thankful that so many more had ripened since last week for them to eat. In addition, classes learned about besamim while making brachot on pleasant smells in the herb garden.
