The Spring Green Collaborative meeting will take place next Wednesday, May 4, from 9:15 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. in the Wakelin Room of the Wellesley Free Library. The valuable program includes a presentation by Chip Osborne on the town’s updated Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan.

Get educated and inspired to reduce pesticide use on your own lawn. Chip will be introduced by Sarah Little, who coordinated the town’s original IPM campaign in 2000 and will provide some background on this important initiative. Town arborist Cricket Vlass will share ideas for planting pesticide-free alternatives such as low maintenance ground cover.

Invite neighbors to encourage them to do this to their lawns too!
