    Brookline GreenSpace Alliance Annual Meeting: New Garden and Pending Pollinator Legislation

    Guest speaker: Elisabeth Bertolozzi, President Fenway Garden Society

    Did you know that many scientists think that the best way to help the migration process for Monarch Butterflies is by creating habitats for them in urban settings? Well…that’s exactly what community gardeners did over at the Fenway Victory Gardens* with the addition of their new Butterfly/Pollinator Garden! Also, there are two bills in the Massachusetts legislature this session that will help protect pollinators. Learn what we can do to help them pass.

    6 pm greeting. 6:30 - 7:30 pm business meeting and speaker.

    RSVP: info@brooklinegreenspace.org

    *The Fenway Garden Society works to maintain and encourage urban gardening in the Victory Gardens for the benefit of all the people of the city of Boston, providing a chance to work outdoors, enjoy green space, and work with nature, as well as cooperate with the Boston Parks Department and other related government agencies, community groups, and urban gardeners in preserving, maintaining and beautifying city park areas and other green spaces.

  • Film Night: Current Revolution-Transforming America's Electric Grid Download as iCal file

    Thursday, 25 April 2019 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

    For decades the utilities industry has been a driving engine of the U.S. economy, contributing significantly to our progress and standard of living, with a business model that focused on centralized generation. Today, however, in the face of a crisis that requires capturing new market share, the industry has its sights on the transportation sector. This shift could catalyze the electric vehicle industry but also sets it on a collision course with major petroleum interests. This new film by the American Resilience Project, along with associated media, educational materials, and an advocacy campaign, tackles the challenge of modernizing the power grid. Through interviews, observational, and archival footage with top executives, military personnel, utilities workers, and elected officials, the film tells the story of a towering American industry on the brink of massive change. Whether it fails, prevails, or adapts, the outcome will profoundly affect us all.

    On Thursday, April 25 at 7:30pm, as part of 2019 Climate Spring, CAB and United Parish’s GreenUP are hosting a screening of Current Revolution: Transforming America's Electric Grid in the Parlor, United Parish, 210 Harvard St (at the corner of Marion St) Brookline.

    Current Revolution: Transforming America's Electric Grid is the new documentary by the production team that made Tidewater, the excellent film shown at last year’s Climate Spring).
    A discussion will follow the screening. 
    Co-sponsored by United Parish GreenUP and Climate Action Brookline
