It’s time to get the Interfaith Garden, located just south of the CBS parking lot, ready for planting. The garden is a partnership with the St. Thomas More Newman Center. Gardeners of any age or ability are welcome to assist in the planting, weeding, and harvesting.
We donate everything we produce to The Food Bank. Last year we harvested nearly 2,300 pounds of food. 
In the early season we work on Sunday mornings from 10-noon. As the season progresses, we also work one or two weekday mornings. We’re having an early season work day this Sunday, March 10th. Regular Sunday work days will begin April 14th.
With questions contact Brent (
brentdeelg@gmail.com) or Noah (heringmann@missouri.edu).

Spring’s almost here, and so is your chance to shine! Join the CBS Grounds Crew and turn our synagogue’s grounds from basic to breathtaking.
Debi Kupferer is at the helm again, with Rebecca Smith as co-pilot. We’re assembling a team to help as needed through the growing season. No strings attached – join in when you can.
