Kids for a Greener Camden

Calling all middle-schoolers who want to keep Camden the “jewel of Maine”, and make sure the kids and pets who live here stay healthy. A large map displayed in the window of the Camden town office shows properties in town painted green where homeowners have agreed not to use poisons on their lawn to get rid of dandelions and other “weeds””Kids for a Greener Camden”  There is a group of middleschoolerswho want to turn the whole map — and town –green. First step: One student or a group of friends adopts a street. Next step: Receive a packet and with the help of this packet get every homeowner on that street to agree not to use harmful lawn chemicals. Once everyone on the street agrees, the street is painted green on the town map and is a street that is now healthy for kids and pets. Everyone who “greens” a street gets a “Kids for a Greener Camden” button, is invited to a party in April, plus is eligible for a Middle School community service Schooner Tag. To adopt a street, sign up on the Kids for a Greener Camden sheet in the office. For more information, check out the KIDS page on the  citizensforagreencamden.org sixth-graders Molly Mann, Liv Berez or Jade Hazzard or email website, talk with kidsforagreenercamden@gmail.com.
