Owner Mike Bald of “Got Weeds?” a Vermont based company, has years of experience fighting non-native invasive species that can dominate our landscapes. He uses manual and non-synthetic control methods to eradicate, contain, or suppress non-native invasive plants.
Manual control methods ARE effective in many scenarios, but few people have documented their efforts through to completion. Mike has worked to control numerous plant species, including giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed, black swallow-wort, Japanese barberry, and wild parsnip. A goal of Got Weeds? is to demonstrate through careful documentation that proper planning and appropriate treatments can be successful without turning to the use of synthetic chemical products.
Join Mike as he will share his insights and proven expertise to help landowners safely control non-native invasive plants!

Drawing and Painting from Nature with Local Artist Eve Aspinwall
Seven Thursdays; May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, and June 7 & 14, 2018
Drawing and painting from nature are relaxing and uplifting pursuits which connect contemplation, inspiration and personal growth in important ways. This course is for adults interested in this combination of nature, art and expression. Basic drawing tools, materials and techniques will be demonstrated and students may also work with color media of their choice, including watercolor, color pencils, pastel and acrylic. We will spend a part of each class looking at examples of artists’ various methods of creating images inspired by nature.
Working from natural objects and still-life arrangements, each student will be encouraged to find their individual mode of expression, from realism to abstraction. Ample one on one attention provided as well as group critiques. Beginners and all levels welcome.
For the first class bring 2B pencils, soft vine charcoal, a kneaded eraser and a 9x12 (or larger) good quality sketchbook.
