The Jewish Community Garden was founded in 2013 by a Jewish Federation of CNY Community Program Fund Grant. The garden offers participants a chance to explore ecological questions and dilemmas from within a Jewish framework by providing a venue and focal point for educational programming connecting the Syracuse Jewish community to the national conversation taking place around food production, the environment, and Jewish agricultural and environmental values. All produce is donated to local family shelters and enjoyed by the extended community. Typical crops we grow are: cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, basil, fennel, beets, carrots, herbs, sunflowers, peas, beans, calendula and more. We are located at Temple Adath Yeshurun on 450 Kimber Rd. in Syracuse.
