CST’s New Greener Waste Management Program
As Guardians of the Torah (Shomrei Torah), we are implicitly Shomrei Adamah (Guardians of the Earth). The Torah commands us to be good stewards and though it’s not easy to be green, if we each do our part, CST will become a lot greener and a little closer to becoming a zero waste synagogue! The information sheet provides all the information you need.
The Shomrei Torah Community Supported Agriculture Season starts May 1st
Join with other CST families who receive weekly boxes of fresh veggies direct from the farmer. This year our host farm is Singing Frogs Farm. They are located just west of Sebastopol and have a unique hand dug, compost rich and chemical free agriculture that generates tremendous production of tasty and healthy fruits and veggies. They welcome visitors on the farm, and have special events that include blueberry picking in early summer–a treat for the whole family. Besides a huge assortment of seasonal produce, they also offer eggs, brown rice, and olive oil.
If you want to split an order (alternating weeks usually) and need help finding a partner, or just have a question, email Rick Reisman.
CST Guide to Locally Grown & Produced Food
Eco-friendly food choices for healthy, conscious, ethical eating… How fortunate we are here in Sonoma County, close to such a bounty of foods! We can help sustain our community, decrease our carbon footprint and get fresher and healthier products when we:
• Buy locally grown products at farmer’s markets or from neighborhood groceries;
• Eat organic to reduce the use of pesticides;
• Eat with the seasons;
• Consider joining CST’s CSA.
