About the Event

Come sit around a fire, surrounded by trees, and listen to stories about trees and the forest.

The land still seems to be in winter dormancy, but the trees are already awakening and preparing for spring. Join Yesod to mark Tu BiShvat (the 15th day of the month of Shvat), which has been a time for Jews to be in relationship with trees and their produce for thousands of years. People of all backgrounds and traditions are welcome. All ages are welcome, and please note that this event is designed for ages 5 and up. 

We will listen to 4 stories, each accompanied by a taste or smell of a different fruit or tree product. Between the stories we will stretch, explore the wooded area, and sing. 

Address and parking directions will be sent in an email once you register. Due to limited parking, we recommend carpooling.

WEATHER 

Keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly. We recommend bringing layers for warmth. Yesod is in a different micro-climate than Asheville, so prepare for it to be colder/windier/wetter here than it might be at home. We will cancel for extreme weather, including strong winds.

BRING a water bottle, closed-toed shoes (we recommend rain boots for kids!), clothing that can get dirty, any snacks you'll need, and a face mask in case we need to get close to one another. There will be stumps and folding chairs to sit on, but if you have a chair that works best for you, you're invited to bring it. 

ACCESSIBILITY

Environment 

We will be in a wooded area with lots of shade and little sun. We will gather twice around a fire. We try our best to keep the fire minimally smoky, but smoke does happen. Yesod will provide stumps, mats, and folding chairs to sit on, but feel free to bring a chair that works better for you. There may be loud noises from neighbors. Being in nature, there may be different creatures and other hazards. We recommend having your little ones with you the whole time that they are here.

Pathways

The short pathway to our gathering spot is not accessible to strollers, wheelchairs, or walkers and is a one-minute walk from the accessible parking spot. If it hasn't rained in 2 days, some off-road strollers can make it. Please reach out to info@yesodfarm.org with questions. 

COVID

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 sit from others when around the fire circle.
