Four Years of Learning to Love the Earth

Our teaching garden is waking up and we are hoping for another wonderful season of vegetable and herbs, learning and discovery.
We cannot embark on our fourth year of growing without the support of people like you!
This year the STG needs:

1. Four cubic yards of growing soil ($129 each)

2. Twenty-four bags of composted manure ($240 total)

3. Seedlings (basils, squash, beans, peas, carrots, tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, assorted herbs and more)
 (any amount)
4. Lumber to create two large raised beds ($200 total)
5. A new Shovel, Steel Rake and Hoe  ($150)
6. Contributions towards a Permanent Labyrinth (any amount)

If you can help with any of our garden wish list items this season, the Temple Office can issue you a tax receipt for your donation. We will acknowledge your gift formally in the summer issue of the Temple Bulletin. You can also honour a loved one through your donation to the Shalom Teaching Garden.

To volunteer for summer watering and weeding please email
Thank you for contributing to growth, learning and food to share. Our young people benefit tremendously from learning about where food comes from and how it grows!
