The London Jewish Community Garden is a community gathering space, a source of nutrition for institutional meals within the London Jewish Community, a source of food charity for the London Food Bank (tzedakah), an educational resource for London Jewish educators, and a chance for members of all generations to participate in a fun and healthy outdoor activity.
Jewish texts have much to say about agriculture and the relationship between Jews, land use, and food.  A community garden provides a meaningful way to participate in the annual harvest cycle that plays a part in our holidays and observance, and to learn about our religion in hands-on ways.  It is also a worthwhile community activity that provides a sustainable component to community meals, kiddushes, and provides an opportunity to talk about, and give, tzedakah.  It is also a chance to teach valuable gardening skills to children and adults.  For 2015 we plan to raise a portion of the garden on new elevated garden beds to make them more accessible to the elderly or disabled volunteers.
