PESCADERO – Wilderness Torah is a unique organization that awakens and celebrates the earth-based traditions of Judaism to nourish the connections between self, community, earth, and Spirit, and one of the flag events (as far as celebrating a Jewish holiday goes) is Sukkot on the Farm Festival, which is basically what it sounds like: celebrating the holiday in a Sukkah, camping out in nature.
The 6th annual Sukkot on the Farm Festival will be a multi-generational four-night camp out and celebration of the fall harvest that will take place at Green Oaks Creek Farm in Pescadero, CA on October 4-8
Farm-fresh organic food, Shabbat and Sukkot celebration, bonfires, music (including live music), learning, kids activities, meditation, movement, and more are in the plan, and to get you more excited (like we did) about this cool idea, here’s a video that we’ve tracked down of last year’s event
In addition to the planned activities, Wilderness Torah, whose nature-based Bar/Bar Mitzvah mentorship program B’naiture became very popular over the past couple of years, invites you to propose an offering as well. The events are community created experiences, so guests who’d like to offer some teaching, from pickling or drumming to text study or yoga, fill out our offerings proposal on the event’s page.
On their website Wilderness Torah, please note that participants should be comfortable in the outdoors and committed to a shared group experience and that prior camping experience is recommended.
