Registration is closed

Join Rabbi Jay and Kavana partner Rachel Strickman to care for our urban areas as part of our environmental tikkun olam, Jewish responsibility for the world around us. We will meet at 9am for a quick lesson in identifying invasive plants, including Himalayan blackberries, then take a short hike to remove invasive plants and pick blackberries along the beautiful trails. Please bring clothes that can get dirty, gardening gloves, and a small pair of garden clippers if you have them. We will be focusing on herb robert and invasive clematis, both of which are easy and safe to remove, as well as ripe blackberries. We'll wrap up our time together with a potluck picnic. Please bring a food item to share. Kids are welcome!
