The Jewish Farm School, Hillel and Repair the World present the ASB Farm Trip, a week of learning and cooperative living near New Orleans during Spring Break 2013. Participants will work on an organic farm, cook meals together and build community in this unique, Jewish alternative spring break trip. We'll combine volunteer service with discussions of sustainable agriculture, food justice and how these issues are rooted in Jewish tradition. Participants will learn a wide range of skills in sustainable and organic agriculture such as planting, harvesting, natural building and composting. To complement the physical work, we'll engage in dialogue on Jewish agricultural, environmental and social justice themes.
**Prior knowledge about the aforementioned topics is absolutely not necessary! We hope this trip will be a learning experience for all**
If you are chosen to participate, you will be expected to participate in all aspects of the ASB trip, attend all scheduled on-campus orientation sessions as well as participate in awesome follow-through activities that we'll give you resources to create! Please consider this as you complete the following questions.
