Newton Community Farm is now accepting applications for its high school intern programs. Summer internships are unpaid opportunities for high school age youth to learn about organic and community farming in a fun, friendly environment while serving either with the Farming or Education Teams. No farming or gardening experience is necessary; just a desire to learn and work hard! The minimum requirement for the internships is two consecutive weeks; three days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) from 8am to noon for the field crew and Monday – Friday with half day (8am–1pm) and full day (8am–4pm) options available depending on the week for the Education team. There are limited spots available per session so apply early to get preferred weeks; applications are due by June 16 for Field Crew and by May 12 for Education team. Go to www.newtoncommunityfarm.org for more information about the programs and to download application forms.

“This study is akin to having a teacher check our math. We are far from the right answer. We need to adjust our state’s accounting of emissions, while we also potentially consider moving as soon as we can to a non-emitting #renewable [energy].” #mapoli https://www.bostonglobe.com/2021/10/25/science/state-vastly-underestimates-emissions-natural-gas-study-finds/
No improvement in methane emissions in Massachusetts over the last decade.
Excellent new research which, like all good research, raises more questions than it answers.
