Wilton Library and Wilton Go Green are excited to host the Yale Whiffenpoof Alumni for a FREE concert.
Comprising Yale Whiffenpoof alumni from the 1960’s and ’70’s, the Classic Whiffs, now in their twelfth year, have performed A Cappella before audiences in Upper NY State, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Boston, Cape Cod, and the New Haven area. Drawing on traditional songs within the Whiffenpoof repertoire, the Classics remain serious about singing, rehearse diligently, and thoroughly enjoy the old songs in contemporary and challenging arrangements.
Join us for this FREE concert and consider making a donation the night of the event to support both Wilton Library and Wilton Go Green.

Books and a Blanket: A children's book reading series
The Wilton Land Trust, Wilton Library, and Wilton Go Green have come together to offer a unique and immersive book-reading experience. Together, we've created an opportunity for families to venture outside, explore nature, listen to stories, and make an upcycled craft. As partners, we're elevating young minds within beautiful landscapes.
Come in your Halloween Costume, take part in singing, dancing, and a Trick-or-Treat Parade!

Wilton Go Green will be tabling once a month during the 2023 Wilton Farmers Market season.
NEW: For residents taking part in the Town of Wilton's Food Scrap Recycling program you are welcome to drop off your food scraps with Wilton Go Green when you come to the market the days we are there. We'll have a tote available until it reaches capacity each time we are there.
Stop by on the remaining Farmers Market Days
Turn a holiday that’s traditionally orange into one that’s a bit more green!
Wilton Go Green is partnering with Ambler Farm to offer our first Pumpkin Compost Drop-Off! Visit the farm any time from dawn to dusk between November 1st and 5th to drop off your jack-o-lanterns, pumpkins or gourds to be composted right here at the farm. Please note, no paint, glitter, googly eyes or candles are compostable as they can contaminate the compost when processed. No other food scraps or other organic materials can be dropped off.
Pull into the main entrance at 257 Hurlbutt St. and head to the top of the driveway by the Red Barn. Look for signage for the Pumpkin Drop and you can drop your goods in the bins provided.
Why should you compost your pumpkins?
1.3 billion pounds of pumpkins sent to incinerators and landfills annually in the U.S.
Diverting this material from incineration cuts pollution generated by burning waste, which negatively impacts public health.
When left to decompose in the landfill, that food waste produces methane gas, a greenhouse gas that’s far more potent than carbon dioxide.
Pumpkins and gourds are 90% water and are full of nutrients. Composting the organic materials captures these nutrients and water, creating a soil amendment to benefit our parks, gardens and farms.
We are excited to partner again with the Cannon Grange to host a Fall Repair Cafe.
We've made some changes to the program so stay tuned for more details and a sign up form.
