Our Values

Rebecca

Farm Manager

Every summer growing up in Massachusetts, Rebecca’s parents grew tomatoes and herbs and she usually didn’t want anything to do with it. Instead, she spent her summers at Camp Ramah –  first for two weeks and then for eight. Once camp was over Rebecca realized the surest way to spend time outdoors was to farm. Rebecca has farmed in production spaces and educational ones like Eden Village East in 2012.  She’s farmed in Massachusetts, China, the Hudson Valley, and most recently Santa Cruz, California where she completed a Certificate in Ecological Horticulture from UC Santa Cruz’s CASFS program. Wherever she farms, Rebecca finds that people connect over being outdoors, working the land, and preparing the fruits of their labor. She is looking forward to the first summer at Eden Village West to create a radical connection with land, food, and new friends.

Jewish Roots & Universal Fruits

Honoring both tradition and innovation, we celebrate Judaism as a relevant, profound and joyful path to sustaining ourselves, building community, and inspiring us towards tikkun olam – working to heal the world.
