At the OFJCC Leslie Family Preschool, a unique program has emerged that lets students get their hands dirty while tackling lessons in charity and sustainability. Led by longtime staff member Debbie Togliatti, the Giving Garden allows students to grow their own produce and donate their yield to those in need. During garden time preschoolers enjoy spending time outdoors while learning important lessons about where their food comes from. Rooted in Jewish values, students cherish their time in the Giving Garden as they explore nature and munch on some of their own organic vegetables.
