About Us

Since its founding in 2009, Ekar has been about planting seeds.
Seeds of this years’ crop.
Seeds of tomorrow’s promise.
And seeds of change.
From the platform of our urban farm, we apply the practices of ancient traditions, customs and teachings to engage our community in the solutions to many contemporary issues.

Inspired by Jewish values, we work to repair the world, to nurture the Earth provided to us, and to nourish our neighbors. We involve the community in growing and giving organic, local vegetables to those without access.

And along the way, we teach and inspire, we connect and build, we plant and we harvest.
We grow, learn, sustain, enjoy and repeat.

I hope you will join us for some fun in the dirt!
