Disabled Jewish Farmers

Blessings for Disabled Jewish Farmers_Or

Calling all Disabled Jewish Farmers! We'd love for you to join our community of disabled (or crip, Deaf***, mad, mentally ill, neurodivergent, chronic pain, chronically ill, etc) folks to gush and kvell** at our magic while sharing what it’s like to be a farmer (or to *want* to be a farmer) as disabled people—the woes, frustrations, victories, and connections we have with the land. We gather monthly with rotating facilitators and would love for you to join our next call.

Every other month DJF will alternate between Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings in order to accomodate more people's schedule. Read on for this year's schedule:

 

2024 Schedule

First Tuesdays @ 3:30-5pm Pacific / 6:30-8pm Eastern: March 5, May 7, July 2, September 3, November 5

First Sundays @ 12-1:30pm Pacific / 3-4:30pm Eastern: April 7, June 2, August 4, October 6, December 1 

 

**Every month there will be a community-led skillshare on a topic such as animal care, hypermobility, or body/land liberation from a disabled Jewish farmer perspective. We will also collaborate to make a zine for distribution at the Jewish Farmer Conference in December 2024**

 

***ASL interpretation is not currently provided, but we welcome signers to join with VRS interpreters. If ASL interpretation would enable you to participate, email us ASAP at liel@jewishfarmernetwork.org so we can arrange for interpretation. These meetings have automated closed captions. We are committed to finding ways to meet each other's access needs.

**kvell is a Yiddish word for feeling or expressing pride and/or delight

Please email liel@jewishfarmernetwork.org with any questions, access needs, or to talk about facilitating a future call. Anyone can facilitate, and that includes you!
