Pursue partner organization (and former New York office mate) Hazon was featured this month in O Magazine in a piece on eco-conscious faith leaders. Hazon founder Nigel Savage chatted with reporter Meredith Bryan about his “eco aha! moment” and his motivation for starting a Jewish CSA:

For me, that’s what keeping kosher means.”
