Jewish Food Movement Discussion
On Tuesday, February 8, 8:30 – 9:30am, the Boulder JCC and Hazon invite you to a lively discussion about the Jewish Food Movement and its growth in Boulder. Anyone who cares about food, farming, gardening, food justice, the environment, and/or invigorating Jewish life will enjoy this opportunity. Nigel is the Founder of Hazon, America’s largest Jewish environmental organization. A visionary, teacher and author, Nigel blogs on the award-winning “The Jew & The Carrot” and was named a member of the Forward 50 – together with Rahm Emanuel, Jon Stewart and Sarah Silverman, among others. At the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia Avenue, Boulder. Complimentary continental dairy breakfast will be provided. RSVP requested—please send your name (and title and organizational affiliation if applicable) to Becky@hazon.org.
Food Justice Workshop at GrowHaus
The GrowHaus of Denver and Hazon invite you to a special Food Justice Workshop with Nigel Savage and alumni from Hazon’s food conference on Sunday, February 6th, 1:00-4:00pm. Come join “Hazoniks” of Colorado and friends for a tour, discussion, and volunteering at the GrowHaus in west Denver. The GrowHaus serves fresh fruits and vegetables that they grow in their cutting-edge aquaponics greenhouse system to a large community in a food desert in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. Adam Brock, their Director of Operations, will lead us in getting our hands in the soil and our heads into the issue of local food justice. Wear comfortable clothes because we will be planting and harvesting. This will also be the kick off for a new Jewish justice organization in Denver, led by Juliet Glaser, that will dig in further to food justice issues in our area. Bring a friend and come rain or shine (we’ll be inside a greenhouse)!
The GrowHaus is located at 4751 York St. in Elyria-Swansea, Denver, Colorado RSVP and questions to Sarah@hazon.org, suggested donation of $10 for this special event.
