Summer Fruits, Sampling Saturdays, Ditching Disposables Forum
…to everyone who joined us in celebrating both our 30th anniversary and the Friends of Ely Park’s beautification project! We had a great time and were thrilled to see so many people having fun together and enjoying the games, inflatables, food, and music. Also big thanks to the Friends of Ely Park, Union Fire Company, musicians, and everyone else who contributed to making this special day a success.
Ditching Disposables Forum – You’re Invited!
Your ideas matter – and we want to hear them! The Lambertville Environmental Commission is holding a Sustainable Business Forum on Wednesday, July 31 at 1:00 p.m. at the Phillip J. Pittore Justice Center, 25 South Union Street, Lambertville. The forum will focus on the role of local businesses in the Ditching Disposables ordinance, which goes into effect on January 1, 2020 – just six months away. Find out how together, businesses and residents can be part of the solution to end single-use plastics, Styrofoam containers, plastic straws, etc.
As one of the businesses that has begun the transition early, Homestead will be talking about our efforts thus far to comply with this eco-friendly initiative and where we plan to go from here. You can find out more about the forum on the Lambertville Environmental Commission’s Facebook event.

We’ll be having samples every Saturday throughout August from 1 to 4 p.m. – here’s a schedule of what you can look forward to:

- August 17: Salsa Saturday
- August 24: Enjoy some goodies from Greg, our baker

Summer Fruits Are Here In Abundance!
One of the things we all look forward to most is summer fruits, especially since so many of them are Jersey Fresh from local farms. Besides being special seasonal treats, they’ve got plenty of health benefits too, so you can snack away without feeling guilty, or use them in recipes like peach salsa, which is great with fish. And watermelon is a delicious way to stay hydrated on those super-hot days – for both you and your pup, as long as you remove all seeds and don’t let Fido chew on the rind! (It’s always best check with your vet first to make sure any new food is safe for your dog.)
