Environmental Task Force

As we respond to the biblical commandment to till and tend our planet, this year we are increasing our efforts to become a "zero waste" community in both our temple and our homes. Get involved in any of our Reduce, Recycle, Reuse efforts.

What an exciting series of environmental action events happening for Woodlands for this spring! Please read on to see activities to get involved in!

Ardsley Pollinator Pathway, Sat, May 14

Woodlands' Environmental Task Force is partnering with the Ardsley Pollinator Pathway in their installation of a large pollinator demonstration garden on Ardsley's border at Anthony F Veteran Park. Come help us plant while you learn about native plants and join the fun! Sign up for the 10:00 am – 12:30 pm shift or the 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm shift. The garden is next to the food scrap bins. Register HERE, but please also email ETF@wct.org to let us know how many will be attending from Woodlands. It is a family friendly event, but not for very small children. Questions? Contact Kirsten Kleinman, ETF@wct.org.

Campaign to Combat Climate Change

The ETF is working with Woodlands’ Civic Engagement Task Force and Racial Justice Task Force on the RAC-NY (Religious Action Center – New York) Climate Covenant – a campaign to combat climate change. Want to fix the world, literally? Urge our legislators to support two bills that will reduce the use of natural gas in buildings, which accounts for 32% of greenhouse gases in New York State. Please go to this website to get more information on the bills and to send an email to our legislators with one click.

Also for this spring, the ETF is working with the Pollinator Pathway veggie committee, WCT youth leader Avital Abraham, and a WCT Academy student in creating a brand new vegetable/pollinator garden in our own backyard. If this is a project you’re interested in being involved with, please email etf@wct.org to know more!

Your suggestions and ideas are welcome.

Leader: Kirsten Kleinman, etf@wct.org.
