6 Ways to Bring Shmita Consciousness

This week we are reminded of the significance of investing in relationships with our neighbors and the soil. Here are six ways you can build these relationships:


1. Allow the soil to rest.

2. Plant cover crops to build fertility and erosion resistance.

3. Plant native species.

4. Walk or ride through your neighborhood instead of driving a car.

5. Share your harvest with those in need.

6. Create together (cook, build, preserve…).
