What is the connection between composting and redemption? Looking to cultivate a low-barrier daily (or weekly) spiritual practice? In this unique class, we will learn both the practical skills of successful, no-smell composting — whether in an apartment or a backyard, and explore Jewish teachings about the spiritual practice of transforming our food “waste” into new growth. Join us as we draw on Jewish composting wisdom going back to biblical times, and relating to the ecological and spiritual needs of today. All levels of composting experience welcome.
