Summervale Has A Little Help From Its Friends

By Megan Sullivan, Summervale music intern

Every Thursday, the Intervale Center lawn is filled with hundreds of smiling faces, swaying to the music of a new artist.  People leave with full stomachs and memories overflowing with new experiences.  Summervale would not be where it is today if not for the amazing supporters and sponsors that give their talent, food, and time to make it happen! It has become a Burlington summer staple with the help of two local music gurus:  Joe Adler, general manager for Radio Bean, is thanked every Summervale for putting his hard work into finding these up-and-coming artists.  Mike Trombley, owner of Advance Music Center, donates one of his limited sound systems each week in order to make the music travel all throughout Summervale.

Have a Heart, Pull a Weed Day: A Huge Success!

Have a Heart, Pull a Weed Day: A Huge Success!

On Saturday, May 2, a group of 20 volunteers removed 300 invasive species from the Intervale Center’s land as part of our second annual “Have a Heart, Pull a Weed” Day, sponsored by Healthy Living Market and Café. Just like non-native animals, invasive plants are harmful to the ecosystem because they compete for nutrients, light and space with native plants. Part of the Intervale Center’s mission of caring for our one-and-only Intervale is to make sure to preserve native habitat as much as possible and allow our floodplain ecosystem to thrive.
