Don’t Miss Chubeza’s Open Day Tomorrow!

Chag Sameach!

We’d like to remind you that tomorrow, Thursday, is our Sukkot Open Day and we’d be delighted to have you join us!

The Open Day gives you a chance to see where your vegetables are growing, to get a close-up look at them in the field, and to smell, touch, taste. And of course, you get the chance to meet us, the faces behind your veggie boxes, as well as your fellow Chubeza members who create the community that supports local small agriculture and makes the farm a reality.

We’ll have:

♦ Field Tours: every hour on “the half” – Come wander between the beds, meet the plants and the stories that accompany their growth. Alon is leading a more “professional” tour; Bat-Ami’s tour is designed for kids. Tour schedule (more or less…): 12:30, 13:20, 14:30, 15:30. ♦ Cooking Corner – We’ll bake pita on the fire (saaj) for you to add to the salad. Baking will take place primarily between 13:00-15:00. ♦ Arts & Crafts Corner – This Sukkot we’ll weave some treasures from palm (lulav) leaves – We’ll teach you the basic weaving and you can take it from there to make small mats, bookmarks, jewelry, animals, decorations and more… Guided crafts sessions between 12:00-15:00 (you can continue on your own afterwards). ♦ Tractor Rides – Rides to the fields outside and also inside the Moshav. Board the tractor wagon to view the sights! Tractor rides will take place throughout the day.

Joyous, toe-thumping music will accompany us during the festival – Judy from the Hazel Hill Band and 2 friends will form the “Young-at-Heart’s Old Time Band” and serenade us with wonderful music from 12:30-14:30.

Join us in our famous corn Sukka! Help yourself to our free veggie-salad stand, and don’t miss yummy bakery goods, juice and cider for sale. And settle back to enjoy the delightful cold water, plentiful shade and fresh air.

Vegetables, fruits and additional homegrown products will be available for purchase at our produce stand at the packing shed.

Carol and Ido of the “Ish Shel LEchem” bakery, Melissa of “NiPri Yadeiha” and Ofri of “Tomer and Hamutal Apples” will also be on hand to meet and host you as well.

Driving directions here.

Come one! Come all!

See you soonl! Alon, Bat-Ami and the Chubeza team, Carol & Ido and Melissa and Ofri.
