Discover the enchanting world of interconnectedness at Coastal Roots Farm’s 9th Annual Tu B’Shvat Food Forest Festival.
Jewish tradition teaches that everything exists in relationship: we don’t exist in isolation but rather as part of a larger, interconnected whole. This year’s theme “Together we Grow” reminds us of the profound power of this connection. Every relationship, whether between people and plants, creatures and culture, is greater together than the sum of its parts.
