Thank you to all that braved the weather and came out to march with us in the parade last week. Additional thanks to those that cheered us on along the parade route.

The renewable energy theme drew in more marchers and louder cheers than before, meaning this is a “hot” topic. The float and enthusiasm even won us the Chairman’s Award at this year’s Annual Wellesley Veteran’s Parade. Congrats to all.

We are grateful to Laurel for organizing us, the Bender Family for building the float, the Wellesley High School Sailing Team for combining forces and the Wellesley Wonderful Weekend Parade organizers.

There is a great deal of environmental enthusiasm in town. Simply, email info@SustainableWellesley.com to learn how you can get involved.

 A recent NY Times Op Ed:  Your Gas Stove Is Bad for You and the Planet

Want to do something about your gas stove? your gas heat? your fossil fuel car?

Experience everyday life without gas or gas leaks.  Mothers Out Front teams in Jamaica Plain are hosting a Green Tour where you can see the future happening today.

JAMAICA PLAIN:  Sunday May 19th, 2-4pm

Take a self-guided tour in central JP, showcasing green living– from solar panels to electric cars, composting, beekeeping, edible gardens, etc.– in about 15 homes (and a few businesses and community sites). Neighbors can learn from neighbors and help us all envision what a clean-energy future could look like.

Online map and event page are here.
