The Environmental Show began in September 2004 with a program that raised crucial concerns about building an environmentally sound Newton North High School. Entitled “High Performance Building Technology,” it was sponsored by Green Newton and featured host Beverly Droz, President, and guest David DelPorto, an expert in “green” building techniques.

“Saving Newton’s Last Farm” arrived in October 2004, just as the Board of Alderman prepared to consider appropriating Community Preservation Act funds to buy and preserve the historic Angino Farm on Nahanton Street . The Newton Conservators, sponsor of this show, are also the proponents of the community farm and have worked with the Community Preservation Committee to develop the proposal that was approved by the Board of Aldermen in December 2004. Other shows produced by the Conservators featured Cold Spring Park, Dolan Pond, and the wildlife of the Charles River.

Both organizations are dedicated to highlighting issues important to Newton residents. Tune in to learn more about your parks with the Conservators, and to learn to think globally and act locally with Green Newton.
