Sustainable Arlington membership development. SA began in 1999 and has been active in a wide variety of energy, environmental and sustainability projects in the Town ever since. We are always interested in meeting other Arlington residents who want to know more about or take action regarding climate change, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and many other aspects of creating a more sustainable future for Arlington. Whether you have just one question or want to find your niche in the local quest for greater sustainability, we'd like to hear from you.
Publicizing EcoFest 2012. Last month (Dec. 2011), the Robbins Library information table became available unexpectedly so we quickly mounted a display announcing our March 31 event "Locavoracious ... About Food." The display included a 3-panel photo and test backdrop plus a selection of books from the Robbins Library collection on many aspects of food.
