Thank you to the entire @berkshireblanket team for all the help!

As a member of @1percentftp, we aim to raise awareness and inspire positive change in our community. Our Comfort Crew spent their first volunteer day at the @hitchcockcenter bringing life to the new Colleen Kelley Discovery Yard. The crew created plant beds and planted native species. This discovery yard will become an interactive outdoor classroom for people of all ages.

What does “home” mean to you? In the October 12 Earth Matters, contributor Kristin DeBoer answers that question for herself, saying it starts with the land. She goes on to make the case for land conservation as a key element of preserving the planet.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait a few days and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page.

We are thrilled to be part of this year's Girl Scout Geek is Glam STEM Expo with the Western and Central MA Girl Scouts on Saturday! We are passionate about getting girls and young women interested in the sciences!
.
Hitchcock educator Katie Koerten will be leading engineering design challenges for 4th-8th graders based on our living building. .
In order to mitigate the effects of climate change, we need to design buildings that use less energy and conserve water. And, we need innovative thinkers to help us design them! Katie will help the girls propose a design, build a model, and test their prototype of a building that saves energy by collecting and storing rainwater for consumption by the building's inhabitants. We expect girls to come with an open mind, ready to brainstorm, design and build!
