Chestertown Town Hall Gets Solar Power!

The Town received an EECBG grant of up to $28,000 for energy efficiency improvements at Town Hall, which were recommended by the Maryland Energy Administration and based on an audit that they performed in 2010.  The grant paid for a new condensing boiler with 96% efficiency that replaced a unit with 84% efficiency; for the retrofit of 97 T-12 fluorescent light fixtures with T-8 bulbs and ballasts that will save 43% in energy; and for a 3.36 kW solar PV system (see pic below) that will help offset the building’s consumption of traditional “brown” power.  The solar PV system will save the Town approximately $700 per year in electricity, while also generating SREC income of approximately $500 per year.

Lemon Tips!

One of my daughter’s called this weekend with a question. Her apartment smelt stuffy and the air smelled over used from this long winter . She did not want to add chemicals to her home to “clean ” the air and wondered if there was a more natural and healthier way to freshen up for spring. I do not use any chemicals in my house and referred to my list of natural products that have been the workhorse of clean homes for a long. long time . The attached link provides information of the cleaning and healing power of lemons .

Got Compost?

Hooray ! Spring may actually be coming soon. It is time to clear the cobwebs from our tired winter brains and embrace the coming renewal. We now have compost bins available for sale at Town Hall through Infinity Recycling.
The cost of these bins is incredibly low and so easy to use. You can stop by at Town Hall to see one in our lobby. I am attaching a list of things that can be composted and I think you will be amazed at it’s comprehension.

HOW TO PLANT VEGGIES!

I KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT GARDENING AND RELY COMPLETELY ON CHESTERTOWN FARM MARKET AND COLCHESTER FARM. HOWEVER, I THINK THIS YEAR I AM GOING TO
TRY AND BE A LITTLE EARTHY AND START A SMALL GARDEN. LOOKING AROUND MY WINTER BEATEN BACKYARD I NOTICED A LARGE NUMBER OF UNUSED POTS FOR PLANTS. FOR ME ACQUIRING POTS IS LIKE ACQUIRING PURSES FOR OTHERS. SO I THINK , FOR ME, CONTAINER GARDENING IS THE WAY TO START. I WILL NOT HAVE TOO MUCH INVESTED EMOTIONALLY OR FINANCIALLY AND IF ALL FAILS , I STILL HAVE THE FARM MARKET. SEE THE ATTACHED LINK FOR A HOW TO ON THE MOST NUTRITIOUS VEGETABLES AND HOW TO PLANT THEM.
