  • Camp garden helps kids’ generosity grow

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 24, 2013 | 3:29 pm

    Camp Hess Kramer in Malibu is quiet in its off-season — or quieter, at least, if you’re used to seeing the space filled to bursting with energetic young campers. In the fall, it’s populated mostly by groups of adults who come through to use the grounds as a conference center, and...

  • A Biblical garden story

    February 1, 2012 | 2:30 pm

    Rabbi Jonathan Kupetz and his wife, Karen, are stumped. They’re trying to explain just how many varieties of lettuce they’ve been able to grow since an urban farming company called Farmscape installed an organic garden in their yard last year. It’s a Wednesday, and rather than...

  • Dig, plant, grow, give—sharing the bounty of food

    If there's one thing Gabe Goldman wishes more Angelenos would do next spring, it's get their hands dirty.

    The American Jewish University (AJU) professor and director of experiential education is signing up students, synagogues and anyone else with a piece of land and a green thumb...

  • Mark the New Year with late summer harvest menu

    By Judy Zeidler

    A recent trip to Italy made me aware of the wonderful possibilities of growing your own lush, flavorful garden-fresh food. The villa where we stayed was entirely self-sufficient, with magnificent varieties of produce, eggs gathered from the hen house and the proprietors even making...

  • Ecohustle Blooms in Community Garden

    By Marc B. Haefele

    June 1, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Whether politicizing nature is altogether wise is something we shall learn."

    -- W.H. Auden

    I first saw Joan Baez sitting on the floor of a farmhouse living room near my high school, and she was playing guitar and singing like an angel. Her black hair, "like a raven's wing," hung...

    Inch by Inch, Row by Row!

    This week's Torah portion, Tazria, means: "If a woman gives birth," but it can also mean "plant." And so, being the beginning of spring, that is exactly what it is time to do!

    Mitzvah Goreret Mitzvah – One Mitzvah Creates Another

    It's time to plant...

  • Campers Hit the Great Outdoors

    By Lea Silverman

    May 27, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The tomato plants are thriving. Their leafy green stalks shoot straight out of the moist brown earth and sway gently in the breeze. The lettuce, alfalfa and spicy greens starts also look healthy. Herbs grow everywhere. This garden, like all gardens at one time, is still in its...

  • A Portion of Parshat Re’eh

    By Abby Gilad

    August 16, 2001 | 7:59 pm

    In this portion, God tells us something so important that it is mentioned twice: Do not sacrifice anywhere but in the Temple. Why is this so important? Why can't the Israelites build an altar to God anywhere? It's similar to the idea of "appropriate restaurant behavior," a phrase...

  • My Mother’s Kitchen: A Natural Disaster Area

    By Burt Prelutsky

    November 23, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    My mother had a green thumb. Too bad she employed it in the kitchen, not the garden. To her credit, she was such a good housekeeper, you could have eaten off her floors. Which, unfortunately, was preferable to eating off her plates.

    There are people, I'm aware, who are terror-stricken...
