Tree of Life Orchard

Support

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 is 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. 

Elmore Roots is offering a 20% discount for trees and shrubs to be planted in the Tree of Life Orchard. To purchase a tree contact David at Elmore Roots. Then Schedule a Planting with us. Make sure to let us know who the tree is in honor of.  Alternatively, make a donation below and we will get the fruit tree and plant it in honor of your loved one or celebration. 

Consider also honoring a loved one with the giving spirit by donating blueberries, apple cider, pear cider, dried fruit or nuts grown at Elmore Roots to a Living Tree event and to help the Living Tree community thrive and dance and sing with local organic fruit song.

About Rabbi Sholom Brodt: 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 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).  

Plaque’s are not available at this time, if you would like to create a plaque please check in with us about it, the cost of the plaque will be an additional fee.
