Deepening Faith. Living Well. Enacting Justice.

Second Season of CSA Sponsorship by UUCB

Green SanctuaryUUCB’s Climate Action Ministry found an interfaith partner last year to support one of our goals toward Green Sanctuary Certification.  Tuv Ha’Aretz is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project. 

Tuv Ha’Aretz gives people from Boulder County faith communities an opportunity to eat local, organic produce through partnerships with local farmers and to explore contemporary food issues from faith-based perspectives. The CSA works with Red Wagon organic farm in Boulder County to provide shares of locally grown produce. Eating local for a significant portion of your family’s meals minimizes carbon emissions in comparison to food transported across country or oceans. Organic farmers also work to preserve the quality of the land.

Membership in Tuv Ha’Aretz includes weekly or every other week pick-ups at convenient locations of a wide range of produce selected to provide variety and even some food adventures. It includes a weekly blog from Red Wagon Farm, cooking and preserving ideas from Tuv Ha’Aretz, and additional programming. This year the CSA sponsored a screening of the film “Fed Up” at UUCB.

Information for joining the CSA will be available at a table after the service on January 25, with a representative from Red Wagon Farm here to answer questions.

Local, organic produce…all with a spiritual connection
