To mark the arrival of bicyclists, Waldo County community groups are preparing a week of activities with the New England Climate Summer the week of July 18 through 24, from potluck suppers and community gardening to a "permablitz" and a bridge-building project on the Little River Community Trail. Hosts for the week's events include the Belfast Area Transition Initiative, the UU Church of Belfast, Newforest Institute, the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition, Belfast Community Gardens and the Charles Street neighborhood.
