This week we are joined by the New England Climate Summer riders! New England Climate Summer is a summer internship program for college students, graduate students, and recent graduates. Climate Summer riders travel exclusively by bicycle in small teams across New England, spending approximately one week in a community before biking on to the next. While in each town, riders connect with community leaders that are actively addressing society's addiction to fossil fuels by crafting local solutions that strengthen communities.
June 24, 2011 -- Every month, more than 44 million people use SNAP benefits to access nutritious food. Most of us probably imagine individuals purchasing items like tomatoes, squash, and apples with their benefits. SNAP, however, can also help people buy seeds and plants that produce edible items. All SNAP retailers, including Farmers’ Markets, are authorized to sell seeds and plants to SNAP participants.
Our Saturday Farmers Market is set to begin tomorrow, July 9th, 216 Lawrence St., corner of Lawrence & Park Sts. 10-2pm. Please come down and purchase fresh, local fruits & vegetables. We Accept EBT/SNAP/Food Stamps/WIC/Senior Coupons/Cash/Debit & Credit. If you can't make it tomorrow we also have a Wednesday market on Appleton Way from 9-4pm.
Groundwork Lawrence (GWL) is looking for NEW Green Team Members.
We'll be planting trees at Howard Playstead this evening as part of the park improvements wrapping up this month. We need a few strong volunteers to help dig the tree pits and prepare the site for the 5:30 tree planting with Lawrence's young baseball players. We'll be on site starting at 1:00 PM and hope you can join us!
We are sorry to report that due to rain the Kite Festival has been cancelled.
