    Tina Maynard SMWG 2013 Tina Maynard SMWG 2013 Presentation Transcript

    • MAYNARDCAN! Tina Woolston Maynard
    • 3 RECENT INITIATIVES 1.  Monthly Eco-Chats 2.  2012 Book and Film Series 3.  Contributions to community discussions a.  Golf course re-use b.  Regional storefront co-op c.  Green community committee d.  129 Parker Street
    • 3 SUCCESSES AND BEST PRACTICES ¢  Did initial greenhouse gas inventory for town, laying groundwork for becoming a green community. Also helped legitimize group. ¢  Energy fairs in early years raised awareness of group presence. ¢  Rain barrel and compost bin pick-up days ¢  Strong interface with other community groups —  Litter league —  Community garden
    • 2 LESSONS LEARNED ¢  Just existing as an interest group helps town officials move forward on green initiatives (e.g. solar farm, green community designation) ¢  Rotating leadership annually helps distribute the effort and prevent burnout. Having two co-chairs helps maintain momentum as personal energy ebbs and flows.
    • 2 PLANS FOR NEXT YEAR ¢  Another rain barrel and compost bins drop-off day – hopefully with neighboring town(s) ¢  Decide on new leaders
    • 2 METROWEST COLLABORATION IDEAS ¢  Make a calendar of annual or bi-annual pot-lucks hosted by the various towns in the Metrowest to network and have fun together, build community and support. ¢  Start a metrowest listserv and or quarterly newsletter for items of interest to all.
