The Arlington Garden Club highlighted their upcoming events: a spring Plant Sale and a fall Garden Tour The Arlington Garden Club highlighted upcoming events at 2018 EcoFest in Town Hall.  While humans concern themselves with the challenging situation of needing to stay apart from each other, the Earth continues its work of providing us oxygen, processing our carbon dioxide and providing creatures with food and water. That’s worth celebrating.

EcoWeek at Home runs from Monday, April 20, through Saturday, April 25, and provides an opportunity for residents of all ages to express appreciation for our planet while safely protecting ourselves and each other.

Without leaving your home, those involved plan to have fun through engaging activities, readings, videos and live-cam links of animals. Residents and town employees will send a greeting each morning, and an Ottoson Green Team student has initiated a project called "50 People Earth Day Video."

EcoWeek at Home gives us a sense of purpose and tools to take action during a time of uncertainty. There are oceans to protect, waste and energy to reduce, trees to plant, and environmental injustices to right.
