Plant the Dream 2011: A Tu Bishvat Outdoor Celebration

Posted by Oyster on January 16, 2011


Plant the Dream 2011: A Tu Bishvat Outdoor Celebration and Service Project ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Get ready to pick up a shovel and dig, because the Get Fed program of the Jewish
Community Federation is presenting its second annual Plant the Dream: A Tu Bishvat Outdoor Celebration and Service Project.
Tu Bishvat traditionally celebrates the greenness of the world with an emphasis
on trees (which is why some call it the “Jewish Arbor Day”). We are going to plant
trees in San Francisco’s Holly Park to help the San Francisco Park and Recreation Department beautify this City by the Bay.
We will also put a modern spin on this holiday ritual by planting a ceremonial tree.
Honorary tree planters – individuals selected for making a major green difference in our community and world – will dig into the lush soil and “plant” their green dream for 2011.
The honorary planters will include:
Zach Franklin: GRID Alternatives
Jennifer Gorovitz: CEO, Jewish Community Federation
Adam Werbach: Saatchi& Saatchi S
There will be customary Tu Bishvat snacks (dried figs, dates, raisins, almonds,
and carob chips), musical guests and good times in a beautiful part of this great city.
Mark your calendars and join us at 10:00 am on January 23to celebrate Tu Bishvat and support the Jewish Community’s wonderful act of tikkun olam – a gift of a newly restored park to the community!
