A group of 12 students from Northwestern University will be traveling to Denver for a week at the end of March to work with Ekar Farm, a communal urban farm inspired by Jewish values which works to build community, provide experiential and environmental education, and grow sustainably produced fruits and vegetables, expanding access to those in need.

During our stay in Denver, we engage with local community members on issues of food justice and security as well as sustainable community development. As a group, we will look to explore the intersections between Judaism and environmentalism through text study while also exploring some of our culture's ancient and modern teachings on spiritual revival and growth.

Students will leave Denver with a refined understanding of food justice, urban agriculture, the burgeoning Jewish agriculture movement both in Denver and throughout the country, in addition to having explored the physical and spiritual connection we have with our physical environment.
