Couple of new events coming right up

Evening, all. These two events popped up on my radar in the last couple of days, so I'm passing the info on.

Free screening: "Garbage Dreams"
-- MassRecycle presents a showing of the award-winning documentary "Garbage Dreams," hosted by the Nashua River Watershed Association at its River Resource Center (529 Main St., Groton) on Thursday, March 4, at 7 p.m. The presentation is free and open to the public.

The movie follows three teenagers living in the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, in the world's largest garbage village. The boys earn their livings by collecting and recycling the trash of others, but a multinational corporation threatens their community. The movie will be followed by a panel discussion about recycling.

Please RSVP at www.massrecycle. org/dreams.

Shirley community gardening info session -- The planned community garden at Longley Acres is seeking gardeners for the 2010 growing season. If you're interested, Longley Acres' caretakers will be on hand with details this Thursday, Feb. 25, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Hazen Memorial Library (Keady Way, Shirley).

Contacts are Kim Hampson, e-mail: Longleyacres@ymail.com, or phone: 978-761-3406, or Shirley Conservation Commission, phone: 978-425-2600 ext. 245, or e-mail: conservation@shirley-ma.gov.
