Boulder Jewish Gardens – Get Ready to Plant

Info Meeting Next Week

A Boulder Jewish Community Garden is in the organizational stage and we’re recruiting interested participants to join us.  The garden plot is across the street from Congregation Bonai Shalom.  We welcome participants from across the community, including synagogues, school groups and havurahs.   We imagine a garden where one can rent a small plot and reap the benefits of do-it-yourself gardening.  Included in the rent will be soil supplements, water, lumber for raised beds and other miscellaneous tools for gardening. We expect to prepare the garden in the next few weeks.

Those interested in learning more about this opportunity are invited to join us for an informational meeting on April 14th at 5:30pm at the site to discuss the potential with interested “weekend” farmers.  Park at Bonai Shalom (1527 Cherryvale, Boulder) and walk over.

For further information please contact Lisa Bates at boulderjewishcsa@gmail.com

The Boulder Jewish Gardens is funded by a generous grant from Oreg Foundation.

Our Pesky Thoughts

In this week’s Torah portion, Vaera, G-d instructs Moshe and Aharon to confront Pharoah and demand he allow the Israelites to go off and pray. It soon became a high-stakes challenge between G-d's power and Pharaoh's wise men and sorcerers.
