USF Hillel Jewish Community Center Biodigester

As part of our Green Faith Initiative we have introduced Biodigesters to the USF Hillel Center shepherded by visionary green Rabbi Ed Rosenthal. and Program Director Sylvie Feinsmith to complement their community garden (of Eatin!).

They make some fine home-made ice cream at the USF Hillel and whatever melts or isn't eaten... can turn back into fuel and fertilizer! Thanks to Ed and Sylvie and the staff of Hillel for being the first place on USF campus to "adopt a dragon".
