Mitzvah Morning: Urban Roots Bridgeport – Community Gardens

September 20, 2015 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

communitygarden

Join other B’nai Israel congregants for a morning of social action in the local community. This month we will be working outdoors!  We are partnering with Urban Roots Bridgeport/Green Village Initiative (www.gogvi.org) to help with their community garden on Charles Street in Bridgeport. Urban Roots Bridgeport manages 24 school gardens and 14 community gardens in the city of Bridgeport. Each garden has 1 bed dedicated for donation to local food pantries, to provide fresh produce to city residences. There will be a new garden built, later this year, at a site on Charles Street. Our help is needed to get the area in to a clean piece of land for the build, by removing old beds, clearing brush, etc. No skills needed! Just a desire to help, be outside, get (a little) dirty and have fun with fellow congregants!

We will meet in the temple lobby at 9:00 a.m. for a quick cup of coffee and a bagel, before heading out in to the community for our project around 9:20 a.m. (you can drive your own car and leave when you have to). Please contact Shari Nerreau or Susy Kamin with any questions. You can sign up here: http://goo.gl/forms/14JEVJxULA or by contacting either Shari or Susy.  We hope to see you then!  This is an adult/teen project.
