Food, Faith & Climate: Sabbatical Year, Local Food & Community

Interfaith Environmental Network says
Join us Thursday, April 16th for the second of four monthly symposiums to focus on connections between food, faith, and climate! This month, Rabbi Neil Blumofe will help us explore these connections through a Jewish lens. In Jewish time, this year is a Sabbatical Year, meant to offer rest to the land and free access to food for all. How can this and other Jewish teachings guide us today, as we seek to restore relationships between our selves, the land, and others in our community?

We will also explore practical ideas about food with three guest speakers who are working on the ground to reshape our local community with the Festival Beach Food Forest project:

Elizabeth Walsh, Ph.D. Candidate in Community and Regional Planning at The University of Texas at Austin;

Olivia Sanchez, a recent graduate of Huston-Tillotson University and a founding member of the student organization, Green Is The New Black; and

Christopher Sanchez, Culture & Arts (History & Nature) Education Specialist at Zilker Botanical Garden
