Get Your Hands Dirty With Moishe House West Hartford!

We at Moishe House West Hartford are very passionate about eco-kashrut and sustainable agriculture. It's important to us that we know where our food comes from and what goes into growing it. For that reason, we started a garden in our backyard, in the hopes that eventually we will be able to provide all the produce we use at our Shabbat dinners and other events. In the meantime, we supplement our yield with a share from Adamah's CSA.

In prepping for our garden though, we started way too many seedlings in our greenhouse! We've been offered a second garden on Dover Road to plant the rest of our seedlings, but there's more space than we need and we can't maintain all of these plots on our own. After a lot of discussion, we came up with two solutions:

  1. We will be offering 3 ft x 3 ft plots (or larger, by request) FOR FREE at the Dover Road garden on a first-come-first-served basis. You will be responsible for the maintenance of your plot and therefore anything you grow in your plot is yours to keep. We do however encourage everyone to leave a tithe behind to be donated to the JFS Food Pantry.
  2. If you don't feel like starting your plants from scratch, we will be selling our extra seedlings for $1 each. This is a great deal, because we will show you how to sustainably grow and pick your produce so that one seedling will yield consistently throughout the season.

seedlings available:

  • Tomatoes (Brandywine, Rose, Moskvich, Five Star Grape, Matt's Wild Cherry, Golden Sweet)
  • Peppers (Jalafuego, Hot Paper Lantern, Ace Sweet Bell)
  • Eggplant (Galine)
  • Cucumbers (Diva, Jade)
