Members of three Boulder synagogues, the Tuv Ha’aretz Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and Hazon were among the participants at a gathering this past weekend with Congressman Jared Polis.
Hosted by the Interfaith Coalition for Food Sustainability, the event brought together members of Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Unitarian Universalist and Buddhist congregations that have gardening, CSA and/or other food sustainability or food justice programs. Participants were inspired to hear the ways in which each other’s faiths informed their connection to the earth and they shared successes and challenges in order to learn from one another.

Melanie Gruenwald is participating in the Courage Classic Bicycle Tour in July to raise money for Children's Hospital Colorado patients and families because I want to help Children's Colorado ensure healthier futures for kids.
