Light the Way to Reduce Energy Cost & Fight Climate Change

Did you know LEDs reduce lighting energy (and cost) by 85% compared with standard bulbs? And they don’t burn out nearly as quickly. In this season of lights, switching to inexpensive LEDs is an excellent way to make a difference. But where’s the best place to find them? And how do you know which ones work best?

Your MassEnergize Wayland volunteers researched local lighting suppliers and concluded that Wayland Home and Design, located at 70 Andrew Street in Town Center, offers the best combination of expert advice, product selection and competitive cost. They have a buy-one-get-one free promotion until the end of the year, and they have a great choice of LED Christmas lights.

Finding a local place to buy LEDs is just a start. To learn more about LEDs and find more good deals on solar energy, home repairs, electric cars, recycling and so much more, visit Join the collective genius in caring for our common home!

Now Open: Mainstone Farm Trails in Wayland

Sudbury Valley Trustees 11/30/17: Now Open: Mainstone Farm Trails in Wayland.

SVT and the Town of Wayland have finished the trails at Mainstone Farm and have opened a small parking area at a new trail head on Rice Road.

The Hamlen Family, which owns the farm, agreed to put trails on the property when they sold a conservation restriction to the Town and SVT in April 2017. The new trails meander through the forested portion of Mainstone Farm and connect with trails on adjacent conservation lands, creating a network of more than 11 miles of trails in the heart of Wayland.

When you visit, please remember that the farm is still privately owned and large portions of the land are not open to the public. Please stay on marked trails.

For directions and a trail map, see Hamlen Woods and Mainstone Farm.
