Shani Mink and SJ Seldin, Co-founders of the Jewish Farmer Network.
Earth Day Program: As the co-founders explain, the Jewish Farmer Network, founded on Facebook in 2017, “supports the economic, social, and cultural vibrancy of Jewish agriculture by connecting Jewish farmers to resources and community around the world, mobilizing Jewish wisdom to build a more just and regenerative food system for all. We are building a world in which Jewish farmers are not regarded as an oxymoron or a curiosity, but rather, as valued community members with a unique connection to Judaism’s ancient technologies for building a more just and regenerative food system for all. We envision a world in which all Jewish individuals and communities have access to farms and gardens that connect them to both the agricultural roots of Judaism and the timeless food justice principles contained therein.” The network, which runs an annual conference and a Jews & Land Study Group, has grown to include over 2,000 Jewish farmers around the world.
