Tree of Life Orchard


Honor a special event, person or ancestor

Rabbi Sholom Brodt Tree of LIfe Orchard is an orchard where you can plant a fruit tree in honor of a special event (like a birth, anniversary, graduation, or birthday), a special person, or an ancestor.  

This orchard was created with the planting of the first fruit trees, in honor of Rabbi Sholom Brodt, of blessed memory, who helped bring Living Tree Alliance to Central Vermont and connected us with Rabbi Tobie Weisman and Maggid and Elmore Roots nursery owner David Fried.

About Rabbi Sholom Brodt whom our Tree of Life Orchard is dedicated to:


Rav Sholom Brodt started the Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo, a place of Torah learning in Jerusalem. He was a master of Judaic studies, teacher, and storyteller. Rav Sholom would often come to Vermont to teach at the Yearning for Learning Center. His kindness and joy for Jewish life, shined a bright light on the world and we were lucky to learn with him and enjoy his holy presence. We are blessed to dedicate this Tree of Life Orchard to him, where other inspiring people and moments can be honored


Trees may be planted by you on the farm at an agreed upon time, or we can plant a tree for you in honor of your loved one or special occasion, or plants can be ordered with Elmore roots and then delivered and shipped to the grove, donor does not need to be present (growers at Living Tree Alliance can plant in honor of your loved one).  


We are creating a labeling system on the trees and will post a map to your tree soon here..
