About Farmer Yosef Gillers
A creative and passionate experiential Jewish educator, Yosef's preferred classroom is the natural world. A believer in and a veteran of Jewish summer camps, he has directed wilderness survival and gardening programs, taught glassblowing, and worked as a counselor at 7 different camps. Yosef also taught Jewish subjects in a yeshiva day school while pursuing rabbinical studies. It was there that he conceived of GrowTorah, an educational initiative that has since grown into a flourishing non-profit organization that presently leads Torah gardening programs in six prestigious yeshiva day and high schools and Jewish communal organizations in the Tri-state area. In the winter, Yosef works as a weekend ski instructor. He lives with his wife, Sara, a nurse, and their 1-year old daughter, Zeva (look for her on the U.S. ski team in the Winter 2030 Olympics!), in New Jersey, where they try to spend as little time indoors as possible.
