About the Event

Come to Yesod Farm+Kitchen on Thursday, May 16, 1-4pm, for a volunteer day as we plant sunflowers and learn about their significance in Jewish culture!

We will add compost to the beds and plant baby sunflower plants. Partway through we will take a water break and learn about Jewish connection to plant-based oils, and specifically the relationship that Ashkenazi Jews established with sunflower oil. 

All are welcome. This includes families, folks of diverse abilities, and any religious background. There will be tasks for all ages and abilities.


There are flat, unpaved, wide walkways in the field. We have some shade structures and chairs. There is a composting toilet and a cold water handwashing station in the field, a few minutes of flat walking from where we'll be working. Please email with any accessibility requests and questions.


Please stay home if you are not feeling well or if you have been exposed to someone with symptoms or who has tested positive for COVID in the past 10 days. We ask that everyone brings their own mask. We will also have surgical masks available. Individuals can choose how close/distanced they are from each other throughout the event.


Please reserve 1 ticket per guest. This event is free, and we welcome donations to support Yesod Farm+Kitchen. We encourage BIPOC to sign up for free tickets, and white community members to make a personally meaningful contribution, if you’re able. We also encourage you to join Yesod in making a donation to the Reparations Stakeholder Authority of Asheville (RSAA).
