Polis Speaks at Interfaith Coalition for Food Sustainability

Congregational gardeners, CSA volunteers and food activists share a meal, ideas and inspiration at a recent gathering hosted by the Interfaith Coalition for Food Sustainability.

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.

Congressman Jared Polis addresses an interfaith gathering concerned with food sustainability.
