Over Labor Day Weekend, Hazon, an organization dedicated to creating a healthy and sustainable Jewish Community through environmental education. They contacted us in the spring to see if they could utilize the Appalachian Trail Conservancy's Kellogg Conservation Center as a rest stop for their New York Ride & Retreat. This fundraiser features a loop ride through the Berkshires and raises money for environmental projects at Jewish institutions, as well as supporting their organic farm at the Isabella Freedman Retreat Center, in Falls Village. The Appalachian Trail passes through Falls Village, and the original AT layout is now the Mohawk Trail, which is close to their retreat center.
We were happy to be able to help out and share our space and share our similar missions of inspiring change through environmental education.
