6336 Ardleigh Street
The story in the Torah about the first Yom Kippur features….goats! In the ancient observance of the Yom Kippur rituals, the community’s mistakes and regrets would be confessed while placing one’s hands on the head of a….goat…..and then the goat was sent off to the wilderness. This story is the origin of the term “scapegoat”. The goat sent to carry away the people’s sins was not treated well….but the people running The Philly Goat Project are showing us how amazing goats are, and that goats and the natural environments they inhabit need our care, and have so much to teach us!
We’ll learn about the work of The Philly Goat Project, take a walking tour with the goats, and learn about the watershed environment around the Farm at Arbury. Come hang out with the goats – and see how they – and we – can contribute to the greater good!
Meet at the Pavilion of the Farm at Awbury. 6336 Ardleigh Street, Philadelphia, 19138. Parking is available on Ardleigh (no parking inside the farm).
