The ‘Sadeh warming’ will celebrate the first community harvest in time for the Jewish new year.
As the year draws to a close we will embrace our natural and spiritual connections to the field, to the plate and to our faith.
There will be food, farming, fermenting, music, bands, story-telling, dancing, learning, singing and much more. The event will be held over the Sabbath which we will be celebrating in a non-traditional way with a variety of options.
There are dorms available: mixed or single sex on request. Please get in touch if you are a family as we have some family rooms. You can also camp in the field and use the indoor loos and showers. Please check here for the different ticket prices
The food will be vegan with some non-vegan options available (e.g. milk for tea) It will be hearty, wholesome and most importantly delicious! Where possible it will be super organic and come from Sadeh and if not from Sadeh, our local farm. Get in touch with any queries/requests/allergies.
Tickets include beds (in dorms, those camping need to bring their own equipment), delicious, organic and local food and drink for the weekend and all the many activities, bands and sessions available throughout the weekend.
We will send out questionnaires nearer the time for dorm preferences, parking spaces, food requests, what to bring etc.
Sadeh is open to all - no one will be turned away for lack of funds

The food journey
THE FOOD JOURNEY - an animated, immersive, multi-sensory experience of a part of the human journey associated with the movement of food around the planet. It is part live theatre and participatory experiencing; it is part history, science and the socio-economy of food and people.
The NATURE WALK
Get outside and help grow your community farm. Get your hands dirty with planting, harvesting, digging, building and learning a bit about growing your own food.
A morning service of the heart with singing. Some of the songs will be in hebrew but there will be transliteration so everyone can participate. A lovely and spiritual way to start the day.
