March 25 session on experience with heat pumps, etc. postponed indefinitely

With regret, we have decided to cancel (or at least postpone) the Spring Potluck scheduled for March 20 and the March 25 session on experiences with heat pumps, solar panels, etc.

FHIA’s Spring Cleanup effort is on Saturday April 18, 9-11am.  We usually meet at the park and then spread out to pick up trash along neighborhood roads, etc.  More details later.

Practical Conversation about Solar and Heat Pumps POSTPONED
Wednesday March 25, 7pm. Forest Home Chapel

Installing solar panels or a heat pump system can reduce your fossil fuel use, improve energy efficiency, and make your home compliant with increasingly tight building codes. Both technologies are mature, but a mix of regulations, national and state tax incentives, historic homes considerations, and driven salespeople can make the selection and implementation process daunting.

Please join us for an informal discussion with Forest Home neighbors who have recently installed these systems. If you have already taken the plunge, please come and share your experience.

Spring Brush and Leaf Pickup begins Monday, April 13.

The Town of Ithaca Public Works Department will be picking up yard waste (brush, leaves, pine needles, dead flowers, garden waste, and grass clippings). All yard waste must be at the roadside by 7 a.m. on the first day of collection. See for more details.
