Talia is the manager of Sadeh Farm, which is rooted in Jewish values and aims to cultivate community as well as food.
Sadeh has a strong sense of mission. Key aspects include helping disconnected Jews to re-engage with their traditions through farming, working with other communities on the common goal of preserving the environment, and inspiring positive social action through teaching Jewish values in the context of the land.
The conversation delves into what a Jewish farm actually is, what the traditions Sadeh hopes to re-invigorate involve (how Jewish law requires land to be treated, for example), why it is so important to grow your own food and much more. We have talked about a number of the social and environmental aims in other episiodes, but never within the context of a religion, which I found really interesting.
