April 12 - Social Action Sunday - SEEDS
SEEDS Project
Sunday, April 12

On Sunday, April 12, the Beth El Social Action Committee and the MoB
are combining their efforts in support of the SEEDS program in Durham

Several Beth El members have participated individually in SEEDS over the years.

This exciting Social Action/MoB activity will provide a wonderful opportunity
for Beth El members to work in the gardens at SEEDs
& learn more about this wonderful program.

We will also be helping with & dedicating a pond area in memory of Bekah Resnick,
who was both an active Beth El member as well as garden manager at SEEDs,
bringing individuals to the SEEDs experience
and merging her love of the earth with her love of Beth El.

Volunteers, adults and teenagers (maximum of 35),
will help in the gardens for about 2 to 3 hours,
starting at 9:30AM

Please RSVP no later than April 6th:

We anticipate that this will be an annual event. SEEDs welcomes volunteers throughout the year.

SEEDS Mission statement:
SEEDS teaches respect for life, for the and for each other through gardening and growing food. Located in the heart of Downtown Durham, we are an urban sanctuary focused on promoting principles and practice of sustainable agriculture, organic gardening, food security and environmental steward ship.

Over the many years in the Alston area of Durham it has encouraged young to older kids to respect the earth, to garden and to better understand the value of food. This tremendously successful program has provided educational and community support in after-school, weekend and summer activities.
