Tikkun Olam Survey
Please help us plan our tikkun olam (repair of the world) programming so that it meets your family’s needs! Take this 4 minute survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/M6QRQ6V. Thanks!
JOIN US for Kol Haneshamah’s Tikkun Olam day of service on Sunday, June 3rd.
WHAT WE’LL BE DOING:
Repairing the world, of course! Yes, really!
We will be helping to restore forest habitat along the Duwamish River. Our project will focus on improving forest and shoreline. Healthy and thriving forests are vital to our community because they absorb carbon dioxide and naturally filter rainwater, absorb toxins in the air, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife and create a place for people to connect with the outdoors. To create healthy forests, we’ll focus on removing aggressive weeds.
WHO: Bring the whole family!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
EarthCorps, an organization of forest stewards and volunteers, will supply gloves, tools and water. They’ll teach us everything we need to know about tool use, safety, forest health and the importance of the work we’ll be doing.
No experience necessary!
WHEN: Sunday, June 3rd 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Rain or shine!
