Join the MA Youth Climate Strike

Sept 20, 2019 - various locations in MA, and elsewhere on EarthPosted on September 1, 2019 by Green Newton:

Following the lead and vision of Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, youth have been striking across the globe for climate justice. In Massachusetts, youth leaders organized three strikes in the spring. On September 20, youth and adult allies will once again come together to strike to stop “business as usual.” The strike will be followed by a week of action.  RSVP HERE

Read and listen to WBUR's coverage: MA students constructed a 100' whale mosaic on Boston Common, June 2019.

From 350.org Massachusetts and the Sierra Club:

Make a video to support the Climate Strike:
School strikers are calling on youth, parents, and all concerned citizens to join the September 20 Climate Strike and the week of action that follows. Adults will stand in solidarity with youth to ensure a just and livable future for all. Create a short video about why you're striking, why you care about the climate crisis, and why it's personal to your life! Instructions here. Upload videos here.

Milton Farmer's Market

Milton Town Wharf, Thursdays 1 - 6 pm


Don't forget to visit the Milton Farmer's Market each week for fresh, local food at it's best!  Visit them on Facebook to find out who and what will be on hand each week.  

Sept 12 and Oct 10 - Sustainable Milton will be there to inform you about upcoming events and answer your questions about home energy audits, sustainable landscaping, electric vehicles/lawn care equipment, and more!

Reusable produce bags and large tote bags will be available at the SM table.  Both can be machine-washed and air-dried as needed
(produce bags may fare better in the machine within a pillowcase or a delicate wash bag).  High quality, sustainably-sourced (scrap fabric and recycled bottles) and locally manufactured (made in NH) tote bags are dressed up with nice graphics and sustainable lifestyle reminders. They are perfect for carrying fresh corn, melons and the rest of your farm stand purchases (and make great hostess gifts as well)!!

Don't forget:  If you ride your bike there (with a helmet!) you will receive a $2 coupon which may be redeemed at any of the market vendors.  Thank you Bike Milton for encouraging safe, green transportation to our Farmer's Market!  RIP Marjorie.
