What does your fundraising support?
Registration fees plus 20-25% of your fundraising is used to cover costs of the weekend. Joining the Ganei Beantown ride team will support programming that brings the sustainable food system conversation into our greater Boston Jewish community. Hosting pluralistic community wide events such as the annual Boston Jewish Food Conference as well as teaching homesteading skills rooted in Jewish text, tradition and culture supports institutional awareness and shifts that makes the change we want to see in our community.
