Road Recovery

“Road Recovery events have truly helped to create a culture of support and understanding for those who struggle with various issues,” said Richard Linkens, the district’s director of school operations. “The music programs shed a light on the dark road many walk when they enter the world of drug and alcohol use. It is important for them to know they are not alone on the journey back.”

Sustainable Warwick
It was from this process of grass-roots organizing that Sustainable Warwick was formed in 2006. SW has carried forward the task of preserving and sustaining Warwick’s rural character by starting a series of community initiatives:
The 10% Challenge to get municipal buildings throughout the Town to reduce their energy usage; A campaign to reduce the use of plastic grocery bags at local supermarkets and Farmer’s Markets. A Community Garden that produces organic vegetables for its members and the Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry; our Garden has spawned 3 other Community Gardens in Warwick; A Community Orchard, which Warwick won in a national competition, of 42 fruit trees; A Community Composting Program (in partnership with the Village of Warwick DPW) which makes free, high quality compost and mulch available to Warwick residents; A Town-wide effort that resulted in the permanent prohibition of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking (and fracking byproducts) anywhere in the Town.
