Plant a Tree

Support Shoresh initiatives today and Plant a tree at Bela Farm in honour or memory of our community members.  A unique and meaningful way to mark births, b’nei mitzvahs, weddings, graduations, passings, and all other milestones and achievements. Your donation for 1 tree will now mean 2 trees will be planted at Bela Farm thanks to a generous matching donation. 


At Bela Farm, Shoresh is developing a one-hundred acre centre for sustainable, land-based Judaism, just one hour west of Toronto.  With the support of our community, we are undertaking an ambitious twenty-acre reforestation project to maintain and restore important animal habitat; mitigate the harmful effects of excess carbon dioxide and its impact on global climate change; and leave future generations a beautiful native forest that roots our community in our local green spaces.  As well, we are creating a vibrant community orchard of perennial fruit and nut trees and berry bushes, which will serve as a valuable source of food for us and our animal friends.

By sponsoring the planting of trees at Bela Farm, you are investing in a healthier and greener earth, while supporting the creation of a local Jewish communal space that can be visited and enjoyed by your students and their families for years to come.

FOR ORGANIZATIONS 

Tu B’Shvat Planting Campaign

Participating in Shoresh’s Tu B’Shvat Planting Campaign offers students and their families a unique and meaningful way to celebrate Tu B’Shvat, the new year of the trees!

How it works:

  1. Shoresh will send you enough Tu B’shvat Planting forms to send home with each student.
  2. Parents fill out the forms, specifying how many trees they would like to plant (at $18 each) and how they would like to honour/memorialize with the plantings. Parents can pay with cheque or credit card.
  3. Students bring their forms back to school. Shoresh collects the forms and the following week we will drop off personalized certificates for students, honouring their gift of a greener tomorrow AND a certificate for your organization honouring the total number of trees your community helped plant this Tu B’Shvat!

For more information or to sign up to participate, please contact us at jodi@shoresh.ca or call 416-805-8382.

Native Tree Tribute Packages

Shoresh is thrilled to share with you our Native Tree Tribute Packages, an exciting new way for organizations to participate in Tikkun Olam, repairing the world, by sponsoring the planting of native trees at Bela Farm in honour of your community members’ milestones and achievements.  Planting a tree is a unique and meaningful way to mark births, b’nei mitzvahs, weddings, graduations, and passings.

How it works:

  2. Have Shoresh issue all the certificates at once: Send us the names of the individuals you are honouring and we will send you personalized certificates for each individual. OR…
    Have Shoresh issue certificates as needed: When you wish for us to send a certificate in honour or memory of a community member, e-mail us their name and mailing address, and Shoresh will send a personalized certificate to the individual or family on your behalf.
