We nurture our gardens to create beauty and a sense of being in sync with nature. In recent years there has been concern about the noise generated by 2 stroke gas powered leaf blowers while gardening. Many are of the opinion that quieter methods such as electric leaf blowers, rakes, and brooms are readily available, making the gas powered leaf blowers unnecessary.
Jamie Banks, the Executive Director of Quiet Communities in Lincoln MA will be presenting findings of a study in noise pollution to our town leaders in September to raise awareness on this issue for discussion at the town meeting in May.
