In The Local News

Here are a few of the things I've read lately in local newspapers thanks to CT Environmental Headlines.

Ambler Farm’s programs encourage sustainable practices
Nice article by the Wilton Bulletin about Ambler Farm. Here's an excerpt:

"Ambler Farm’s mission is to celebrate our community’s agrarian roots. Before the birth of our throwaway society, rural communities such as Wilton had no choice but to reuse and recycle everything they could. They grew their own food and hay to feed their animals, created organic compost from garden waste and leaves, stitched quilts from fabric scraps, made felt and knitted.

  1. Hello, NE Bloggers!
    Our 1-year anniversary is coming up on Jan 27. To mark the occasion I am going to put up a Mr. Linky on the evening of Monday, January 25. If you'd like to write a post about living in NE, fav places to visit, funny stories and stereotypes, recipes, photos of our gorgeous landscape, anything, it would be great if you would link in. I'd also like a little idea of # of participants, if you could just send me a reply.
    Since I don't have emails from everyone, I'm also leaving this message in your comments, sorry for the double-up.
