Sustainable Williston, our community environment and sustainability group, will meet this Thursday, May 4th, at 7:15 PM at the Dorothy Alling Library. In addition to checking in on other news and projects, we’ll talk about a possible collaboration with the library and will get a walkthrough of Vermont’s new Community Energy Dashboard, a powerful tool for Vermont towns to collaborate on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Everyone living or working in Williston with an interest in sustainability is welcome.
When: Saturday, April 8th at 9 AM
Where: Williston Community Park (and other locations) in Williston. Meet at 9 AM for “doo-ty” at the picnic shelter near the skate park on the east side of Williston Central School.
Why: Pet poop that is not picked up sends nutrients and bacteria into our waterways, eventually contaminating Lake Champlain
How: Join a community effort to clean up parks, sidewalks and trails and protect our waters. Gloves, bags, pails, and hand sanitizer will be provided. Participants will receive a package of lake note cards (while supplies last) and be entered into a drawing for cash prizes.
Questions: Contact Lori Fisher 802.658.1414 for more information. Hosted by Sustainable Williston, Williston Recreation & Parks, and the Lake Champlain Committee.
What: Sustainable Williston is sponsoring a seed starting social.
When: Sunday, April 9th from 2-4 PM
Where: Under the gazebo on the town green.
What to Expect: Bring a pack of seeds to share (left overs from last year’s are fine) and a few clean pots if you have them (single serving yogurt containers work great). We’ll provide soil and will have some extra pots on hand (and of course more seeds). April is a great time to plant sees that indicate they should be sowed 4-6 weeks before the last frost date. This includes winter squash, watermelon, and some types of flowers and herbs. Kids are welcome with their accompanying adult.
RSVP: Please RSVP at http://www.sustainablewillisto
ontact/ so that we know how much soil to have on hand. If you forget to RSVP, just come anyway.
