    • West Tisbury School

    This winter has thus far felt more like a confused extension of fall, or a premature spring. Despite the absence of an extended winter chill, the promise of spring still feels as sweet as ever. Longer days lend the feeling that time in the garden is right around the corner. There are ways that our gardening habits can be more or less climate and ecologically friendly. To learn more, Island Grown Initiative and the Chilmark Library are offering a workshop titled Planning a Permaculture Garden on Saturday March 25 from 12 to 1:30 pm at the West Tisbury School. Check the Chilmark Library events page to learn more or email Emily Armstrong at IGI.  
    • 03/31/2023
    • 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM
    • Film Center, 79 Beach Rd Vineyard Haven

    Speakers from Denmark, Maine and Washington State, will share details from the electrification of their fleet. The Steamship Authority and Eversource will talk about the possibilities for our community. Transportation is one of the largest contributors to carbon emissions, and on the Vineyard, ferries make up a significant portion of that transportation impact.  Please come in person to show the Steamship Authority that transitioning to electric ferries is important. If you cannot come, Zoom is an option. To learn more, see the full event flyer here.

    Parking is scarce. Carpool or park elsewhere and walk down to the Film Center if at all possible. 
    Sign up early so we can organize the numbers for lunch!
