To highlight the positive relationship between organic land care, a beautiful yard, healthy eating and healthier local and global environment, the NOFA Organic Land Care Program and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies will host the Healthy Yards, Safe
Waters Conference. Designed for homeowners and property managers.

Biodiversity, climate change, water quantity and quality and other important environmental factors are closely connected with, and influenced by, the way we landscape our yards and communities. This conference will teach you how to transition your yard to organic

The conference will feature interesting and informative workshops, including: Plant Choices and Site Analysis, Rain Garden Installation, Composting, the Importance of Watersheds, Your Yard and the Long Island Sound, Children and Wildlife, Why Go Organic?, a panel discussion on innovative strategies and local initiatives. It will also provide a unique opportunity to consult
with local NOFA Accredited Organic Landscapers about your landscape concerns or with gardening questions.
The conference is supported by a grant to CT NOFA from the Watershed Fund of the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority. The day will include breakout sessions focusing on three tracks for:
community leaders, environmentalist, and do-it-yourselfers.

The conference will cost $25 and will include a delicious lunch.

A Letter to the White House Announces $11 Million Vaccine Access Fund

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites. LISC will administer the fund, helping close the gap for thousands of people, many of them seniors and others living in under-resourced communities, who have not been vaccinated yet because of lack of transportation.

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L. Glover details how the fund tackles more than the transportation gap that is keeping tens of thousands of Americans from accessing COVID-19 vaccines. "The fund offers a practical solution to an immediate problem," writes Glover. "But this is absolutely part of our larger efforts to address equity as well."

LISC, Uber, PayPal and Walgreens Introduce Vaccine Access Fund

LISC, PayPal, Uber and Walgreens have announced the launch of their new Vaccine Access Fund, which allows customers to donate to vaccine access efforts to help connect people without transportation to COVID-19 vaccination sites, particularly those in underserved communities. Customers can donate to the Vaccine Access Fund directly through the Uber app using a new donate feature supported by PayPal Giving Fund.
