The Big Bold Jewish Climate Fest is coming up this week, January 27 (Tu B’Shevat) through January 31, with 165 panels of climate-related goodness! There are (at least) two Boulder-connected panels:
- Thursday, 9:00 am MST: From Metaphor to Reality: Protecting the Tree of Life, that features Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg (JTree founder) offering a teaching, and will also include Boulder JTree branch-leader Natalie Portman-Marsh talking about organizing local chapters.
- Friday, 2:00 pm MST: Indigenous Wisdoms, Reclaimed Action: Love Lessons from Zazu Dreams, featuring local author Dr. Cara Judea Alhadeff, reading from and discussing her newest book.
Register here, and more information here.
More JTree News from Natalie:
Tree distribution: Hannah Perez-Postman Community Outreach & Program Manager, Ekar Farm contacted me by way of Becky O’Brien- they work together on the Hazon seal of sustainability program. Ekar Farm has extra Tu BiShvat trees – a limited number (25 ish?) of small blue spruce saplings
- Bare-root sapling comes with soil & peat pot for $2.50 each.
- Saplings come with a care sheet.
- You will need to plant the sapling in the dirt – it is not already potted.
Let me know if you are interested. Here is a sign-up sheet. I will coordinate getting them from Hannah in Denver and then folks can either pick them up from my house or another central location.
Thank you for supporting JTree,
