Talia is from London, England, where she has happily lived all her life. Raised in the vibrant Jewish community of Golders Green, she attended the non-denominational girls' school her sister, mum, and Grandma attended before her. She was greatly involved in her Jewish community and youth movement. After attending Midreshet Lindenbaum in Israel, she went on to study Classical languages at UCL where she set up a charity, Red Light Campaign, to support survivors of human trafficking, and which she still runs with five other trustees. Somewhere along the way she became disillusioned with her traditional Modern Orthodoxy as she questioned female representation in Judaism. Inspired by Pollen's Omnivore's Dilemma and seeking a new Jewish path, she quit her job in fashion to join the Adamah farm programme where she met Reb Zalman and gained some hardcore farm experience. She had an amazing time and when she returned home, Talia was determined to create a centre for Jewish environmental education and farming, currently not available anywhere in the U.K. To start the journey she studied permaculture and practical horticulture and began working in community farms and gardens learning about crop rotation, edible crops, and animal husbandry. She also developed links with the Jewish community including the JVS and Hazon. Currently she is working with a small Jewish retreat centre in Kent to start developing her Jewish community farm and environmental centre. She is now fundraising and anticipates opening in February 2017.
