New England Climate Summer is a summer internship program for college students, graduate students and recent graduates.

Students in teams of six travel exclusively by bicycle throughout the New England states with the goal of getting out the message that society must seek alternatives to its present addiction to fossil fuels to create a healthier environment for the future.

Each team spends up to one week in a community participating in projects that further the goal of sustainable living.

A team of six students is biking across Maine this summer and when their journey is complete they will have traveled more than 1,000 miles. They intend to visit seven communities in Maine.

Belfast is fortunate to have been chosen as one of the seven communities and Belfast resident, Karen Ireland is the happy recipient of a “permablitz” in her back yard taking the shape of a meditation labyrinth complete with strawberry beds in addition to raised beds of annuals, perennials, and raspberries.

The Climate Summer team visiting Belfast are: Katie Herklotz, Lauren Audi, Avery Beck, Arielle Koshkin, Greg Lemieux and Brad Samuels.

BCTV-2 is always looking for local programming. Anyone who would like to locally produce a show, has previously produced video that can be aired on the station or just wants to share ideas for local shows is welcome to call 323-2430.
