jkidphilly Partner Program: Side Yard Seedlings

Description: JFS Side Yard Seedlings is a new garden-based early childhood program launching in spring of 2018 and engaging children ages 2-6 and their caregivers through Jewish garden-based education. Children and their caregivers will gather at the Jewish Farm School garden for a 90 minute experience which includes caring for plants, nature-based crafts, song sessions, stories, and age-appropriate games and activities connected to the cycles of the seasons and the themes of the Hebrew calendar.  Garden-based snacks will be served.

Location: Jewish Farm School Garden / 50th and Cedar / Philadelphia, PA

Dates and Times/Session Descriptions:

Session 1: 
An Attitude of Gratitude: A Blessing Picnic
The garden is full of things to eat, smell, and look at. Together we'll learn some of the blessings that help us celebrate the joys of everyday experiences, then try them out in the garden and with a picnic snack.
Thursday, May 31, 4:00-5:30pm 
Sunday, June 3, 9:30-11:00am

Session 2:
Na'amah's Ark: Planting Seeds 
Did you know that while Noah was building the ark to protect the animals, his wife Na'amah saved important seeds before the flood? We'll learn about this while we explore how seeds grow and plant our own seeds to take home.

If the Sunday sessions sell out, we will add a second session each Sunday from 11:30-1.
