Visitors can wander the ADA accessible paths or relax in the shade. Friends can play chess on the game tables, or join in a social activity.
Clusters of flowers and trees are planted throughout. Raised vegetable beds yield fresh produce for the JFS Pantry.
Older adults who feel isolated can connect with others. People who are grieving can find a sense of peace; and those overwhelmed by stressful emotions can feel relief.
Help make the garden grow and become a place all can enjoy.
The Dory Zatuchni Village Garden will be a physical space where anyone can come for respite, healing or just a good conversation and a game of chess.
The Village Garden is dedicated to Dory Zatuchni, who has served as JFS’s CEO since 1996. Through her tenure, she has remained committed to the growth of JFS and the care of our most vulnerable neighbors.
Dory's innovative leadership and deep commitment to alleviating pain and preserving dignity inspires all of us.
Cultivated by the Jewish value of kehillah (community, togetherness, and collective responsibility), the Village Garden is an investment in our environment and our future. It will welcome and nurture all generations.
