Get Dirty

The Green Team at Vermont Woods Studios is always happy to get dirty on Green Up Day
We founded Vermont Woods Studios with a mission of conservation so maybe it’s not surprising that Green Up Day is a favorite holiday for us. The Green Team loves (OK doesn’t mind) getting dirty to celebrate it.

Green Up Day in Vermont

Every year over 22,000 volunteers from all across Vermont get together on Green Up Day to pick up litter from our parks, roadsides, beaches and other public spaces.  It’s a chance to get dirty and also an excuse for one of the Green Mountain State’s biggest parties.  All together about 250 Vermont towns are participating so that means 250 parties after clean up is done. Green Up instructions and contact information can be found here. It’s officially tomorrow, Saturday May 6 but if you can’t make it then, clean up whenever it’s convenient and log your participation here.

Connecticut River Clean Up

At Vermont Woods Studios we’ve been cleaning up the Connecticut River front in Vernon for the past several years.  We all leave work early on Green Up Day, clean up the shoreline and then head across the street to Nesbitt’s Portside Tavern to rest, recuperate and replenish.  Join us this year– we have a great time!

Keep Vernon Beautiful

Join the Town of Vernon Green Up team tomorrow, May 6. Meet at the shelter at the Vernon Pool on Pond Road at 9am to get started. Once you have your road assignment, grab bags, gloves, water, and snacks and head out to pick up garbage along our roadways. Meet back at the shelter at noon for a free lunch.  Have fun, feel good and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done!
