May 25 - Keeping Food Out of Landfills Teach-In


We have a special event coming up for LI faith leaders to connect with each other and with the Earth! LIJWJ, the Brookhaven Landfill Action & Remediation Group (BLARG), and the Healthcare Education Program of 1199 SEIU are hosting From Garden to Table to Black Gold on May 25 from 12 -2PM! The event will feature teach-ins on how the garden operates and the important place it holds in the Bellport community.

This is a great chance to learn about a living, breathing community project that is bringing people together to fight for justice!  To register for this event click here!
