Celebrate Earth Day with Beth Ami Family School

Families help plant at Ekar Farms last year.
Families help harvest radishes at Ekar Farms last year.

Beth Ami Family School meets twice a month throughout the school year to do mitzvah projects in the Boulder/Denver community. Each family is a learning group or “havruta” that works together to accomplish a mitzvah.

On Sunday, April 19th from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm, we will be planting seeds at Ekar Farm, 181 South Oneida, Denver.  Last September parents and children helped Ekar Farm harvest radishes.  This Sunday we will help Ekar Farm plant seeds for future harvests.

We would love your help!  Celebrate Earth Day with your family and do a mitzvah!  Ekar Farm is an urban farm dedicated to educating the community about sustainable agriculture practices and food justice, and donating fresh, healthy organic produce to local food banks.  RSVP to bethamicolorado@gmail.com to let us know you are coming.

A few years ago Beth Ami received a Hazon mini-grant and we evaluated our environmental practices. Who grows our food?  Where is it grown?  Are the fertilizers earth friendly?   Today we realize that each of us does make a difference!
