|Wayland - Boston carpool|
Every morning hundreds of cars leave for the Boston area. Every afternoon, they return. Let's half that and save! Go to eRideShare, enter carpool! as the password, and be the first to enter your offer/request. Email email@example.com
|Tool pools and co-ops|
Why does everyone need a big snow blower, a snow rake, a planer or a hedge trimmer? Let's pool our tools and lend them out, like a library. Let's combine our buying power (and cut mileage) in a co-op for locally and sustainably grown and made food and goods. Email us if these ideas speak to you.
Members of the defunct Wayland Wellhead Protection Committee launched an independent website
with research on the town's drinking water.
Our vision for our
town is of a community that thrives in the face of the challenges
of our time. We aim to realize this by building our resilience,
- by fostering our sense of local community, well-being and belonging
- by raising awareness of the
challenges of our time, especially of climate change, fossil fuel
dependence and economic and social injustice
- by empowering all residents with
the tools and confidence for effective, local action
- by acting in the spirit of
collaboration, engendering a shared, hopeful vision
- by preparing by putting systems (local economy, food, energy, etc.) in place for when they're needed.
In 2013-2014, Wayland will celebrate its 375th Anniversary. You can help plan the party! Visit the website here.
There are many ways and opportunities for you to be involved in this wonderful project! Check it out here or contact Mary Antes for more info.
TimeTradeCircle is a local bank where you earn an hour by helping someone out so you can spend it getting helped. An invaluable tool for resilience and fun to boot! This vibrant group of volunteers works in our public schools to promote ecological stewardship with recycling, composting, green purchasing, and much more. It also co-organizes Earth Day with Transition Wayland.
