The Museum at Eldridge will be hosting a free “Tu B’Shvat Winter Garden Festival” this Sunday from 1-5pm. The obscure Jewish holiday, Tu B’ Shvat, is a Jewish Arbor Day of sorts, and celebrates planting and spring. Hanna Griff-Sleven, the Director of Cultural Programming at the museum, says that the festival is a way to be reminded of the natural beauty around us, “That we can’t take it for granted, we need to nurture it and take care of it.” Participants will be encouraged to trace their family tree and plant a personal flower pot, sample holiday foods and participate in a traditional Tu B’Shvat seder. Sweet Life, Russ & Daughters and Tishbi Estate Winery has apparently contributed some “tasty donations”. Find out more about the festival on the Museum’s new blog here.
