 Sustainable Wellesley’s favorite Stand-up Economist, Yoram Bauman, will be back in the area on Sunday, March 25, from 4-6 pm at TCAN (The Center for the Arts Natick). This “Comedy & Climate Change” event is entertaining and thought-provoking and will be followed by a reception with the speaker.  Yoram will be including material on a carbon tax as well as other environmental and climate related subjects.

Just down the street is Land’s Sake Farm, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has been connecting people to their local ecology in Weston, MA since 1980. Their focus is tri-fold: environmental education programs, food donation programs, and sustainable land management. Education programs run year-round and are for people of all ages, ranging from tomato canning workshops to week-long summer camps to maple sugaring (big event on March 24th), and after-school programs. These community-building programs are focused on connecting people to each other, as well as to the land around them.

Land’s Sake sustainably manages land throughout Weston, whether it be keeping the local forests healthy or using organic methods on the farm. Their goal is to preserve the open space of Weston for generations to come. Part of this sustainable land management includes running a successful Community Shared Agriculture Program, and Farm stand. Visit landssake.org to learn more.
