Garlic, Goats, and Going Rural:
Three Stories of Farming Through a Jewish Lens
Have you ever dreamed of leaving the hustle and bustle of the city for rural living?
At Garlic, Goats and Going Rural, our film fundraiser, you’ll get a taste of rural life WHILE supporting our efforts to protect pollinators.
Join us for a screening of TIFF 2018 viewers choice runner-up award- winning film, The Biggest Little Farm, which tells the story of a brave couple’s odyssey to start an organic farm and live in harmony with nature. We will also hear from local Jewish farmers Daniel Hoffman (the Cutting Veg) and Debbie Nightingale (Haute Goat) about the joys and challenges of being a Jewish farmer in Ontario.
Proceeds from this event will directly support our efforts to develop a 20-acre Bee Sanctuary at Bela Farm. While native pollinators are essential for pollinating our food and ecosystems, their populations are severely threatened by habitat loss, pesticides, and disease. Shoresh’s Bee Sanctuary offers pollinators clean, diverse and critical habitat while giving community members a unique, relevant, and meaningful opportunity to participate in ecosystem restoration.

All we need to make this event amazing is YOU. Get your tickets today or click here for sponsorship opportunities.
