Rally to "Say No to the (State Budget) Veto"

Governor Scott just vetoed the entire state budget and education funding bills including funding for child care, affordable housing, clean water, fighting the opioid crisis and our state colleges. The education funding bill is what ensures our schools are open to all students to receive the high-quality education they deserve. Many people believe his actions are an attempt to undermine teachers' collective bargaining rights. If you want to speak out against the veto, and support teachers, unions, and collective bargaining, come to the rally Wednesday afternoon from 4:30-5:30 at Pliny Park. Other rallies are being held across the state, including in Putney & Bellows Falls.

Dummerston Perennial Swappers Invites New Gardeners to Come to Swaps Empty-Handed!

[Dummerston]-- Back in 1987, Ruth Marx, a human geneticist and avid gardener, had paid a man good money for his blue lobelias only to hear a friend later say, “Oh, why didn't you tell me? I'd have given you some of that.” About the same time, Bess Richardson, a nurse at Grace Cottage, was tossing her culled perennials over a bank. “Ruth and I talked at church one day,” she said, and they came up with the only logical result: Dummerston Perennial Swappers, a loose-knit club designed to put excess perennials into the hands of people who want them.

We named it Perennial Swappers because of the radio swap show on Smith and Clarke in the Morning on WTSA,” Marx said. “But it's a plant giveaway.” No one has to bring an item to get one. Pre-internet, Richardson and Marx spread the news through church announcements. At the first meet people swapped plants then convened in the church's basement kitchen to hear some sound gardening advice. “ I put up a slide of a cat smelling a crocus,” Richardson remembered, and then she gave the talk. After subsequent swaps, “We started visiting flower gardens, and sometimes those gardeners had plants to share, too.”
