A few featured activities

Getting Crafty:

We'll be making our first seasonal scarecrows to help us out on the farm! To keep the birds away from our veggies, it's an important job getting their appearance right. Dig around in your cupboards and attics for any old clothes you'd like to bring - shirts and jackets, forgotten jeans, discarded dresses, and bib overalls are excellent scarecrow garb. Remember, the brighter the better. Red is a particularly good colour to ward off crows, black birds and starling. We'll also be providing garments, so don't worry if you can't find any of your own. Other handy recycled materials we'll be using include: buttons, wire, twine, bottle caps, old CDs, rags. We'll be collecting grass clippings, fallen leaves and hay from around the farm, too.

Poetry of The Sadeh

Come write your stories of the land. Join Sara to get quiet and let the poetry of The Sadeh flow through. We will be exploring Jewish nature poetry across the ages and create our own. (EVERYONE is a poet, so EVERYONE is welcome). Pencils provided.

Brewing beer

Brewing beer is an ancient art as old as civilisation itself, and you can carry on this tradition by learning to make it in your own home. Discover the process of how beer is made from its raw ingredients, and enjoy a history of the drink whilst sampling some homebrews along the way. 

Three Acres and a Cow - A History of Land Rights and Protest in Folk Song and Story.

Robin Grey and Rachel Rose Reid form part of Three Acres and a Cow - A History of Land Rights and Protest in Folk Song and Story.
They will be joining the Sadeh to host a special singers' circle, a singalong of English and Yiddish songs of protest and country life.  Instruments welcome!
Rachel is the UK's first woman to be ordained by the Kohenet Institute, a co-founder of Moishe House London, and a performance artist, working to open hearts through storytelling, ritual, and song, from the Barbican to Burning Man.
Robin is a social historian, folk musician and land rights activist, who has graced the boards of Cecil Sharp House, the Southbank Centre, and the Union Chapel as well as performing closer to the earth around London’s gardens.
