Thank you for gathering in multigenerational community for the seventh annual Sukkot on the Farm Festival—a three-night campout and celebration of the fall harvest at Green Oaks Creek Farm & Retreat in Pescadero, CA.

Based on requests from many of you, we offered tickets to Sukkot on the Farm for one, two, or three nights!

Our village was full of farm-fresh organic food, Shabbat and Sukkot celebration, bonfires, music, learning, kids’ activities, meditation, movement, and more!

We reawakened the Water Festival, Simchat Beit Hashoevah, where we honored and called in the waters for the coming year (successfully!) and danced and celebrated with live music on Saturday night!

and the amazing teachers joining us!

Avodah (work exchange)

Come work before, during, or after the festival in a number of areas for a discounted ticket. Applications for Avodah will be accepted until Tuesday, September 10, or until all slots have been filled.

Indoor Housing Option

If you’d like to stay in a room instead of camping, we will reserve a block of rooms at the beautiful nearby Costa Noa eco-resort. There are other local indoor accommodations as well. Let us know if you are interested!

Celebrate Chag on the Farm

We are really excited about celebrating chag this year in advance of the festival. Wednesday, September 18, is the first night of Sukkot, and all are welcome to join us on the farm before the festival begins for informal camping during the chag. All of the main festival structures will be set up by Wednesday evening and we will be putting the finishing touches on everything on Thursday before the festival begins. We will be observing the chag by transferring flame, making Kiddush, and other ritual observances each day.

For more information about our chag observance you can visit our FAQs. Please contact us for more details if you are considering this option.

Propose an Offering

Wilderness Torah events are community-created experiences. We invite you to propose a Sukkot Offering! If you’d like to offer a teaching, from pickling or drumming to text study or yoga, complete an offering proposal!

Thanks to Our Donors

We are so grateful to the donors who are supporting Wilderness Torah and providing their products to this year’s Sukkot on the Farm. In keeping with the Jewish tradition of knowing the source of our food, we want to acknowledge some of the folks who will be nourishing us!

Everyone is welcome at Wilderness Torah events. We create pluralistic, multi-generational community celebrations to reconnect us to the earth-based traditions of Judaism. We welcome Jews, non-Jews, interfaith couples, the GLBTQ community, and people of color. We do our best to offer a range of activities so that people of all backgrounds and experience levels can plug in.

Participants should be comfortable in the outdoors and committed to a shared group experience. Prior camping experience is recommended.
