EV Charging Station Officially Unveiled at Uwchlan Township Building

IMG_5926[1]The Uwchlan Township Environmental Advisory Committee held a "green" ribbon cutting to unveil the Electric Vehicle Charging station now open in the Uwchlan Township Building Parking Lot. The charging station was paid for in part by grants obtained through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and PECO. The new charging station will be a stop on the Chester County Clean Energy Tour scheduled for October 19th from 10am-1pm. Click Here for more information on this event.

The EAC will also be hosting a Milkweed Planting Workshop on October 19th, from 10am to 12pm. Seeds will be provided, along with best practices for planting and growing milkweeds to feed monarch caterpillars. Bring a clean gallon milk carton to try a cool way to winterize your seeds.

Farmers Market Newsletter

Did you know there is a farmers market every Thursday in Uwchlan Township? The Eagleview Farmers Market is held every Thursday from 3 - 7 PM in Eagleview Town Center, featuring local farmers and food makers. What can you expect to find at the market:

  • Fruits and vegetables, all locally grown by the farmers at the market
  • Pasture-raised meats, poultry and farm fresh eggs, raised by the farmers at the market
  • Cheese & yogurt made from local milk
  • Fresh breads and baked goods made with local grains
  • Heat and eat dinner options made with local ingredients including soups, Mexican specialties, pasta and more
  • Jams and preserves, pure PA maple syrup
  • Locally crafted beer, wine and distilled spirits
  • And so much more!

As we move into autumn, the bounty of produce from the farmers is a seasonal stunner. Summer fruits and vegetables are gradually replaced with the autumn harvest. It’s an exciting time of year at the market in anticipation of our annual Thanksgiving Farmers Market on Tuesday November 26 from 2 - 7 PM featuring local pasture raised turkeys, conventional and heritage breed.

Please note: in October the market hours will change to 2 - 6 PM due to the shortening of the daylight hours.

The Spotted Lanternfly: Spotting and Destroying Egg Masses

While stopping the Spotted Lanternfly may seem like a spring or summertime activity, there is still plenty of work to do as we enter Fall and the temperatures start to cool. Fall is when the Spotted Lanternflies start to lay their egg masses, which can be found on virtually any flat surface. Watch the video below from the Penn State Extension to learn how to identify Spotted Lanternfly egg masses and how to destroy them from hatching this spring.

Fall Leaf Pickup

Help keep our stormwater inlets clean and clear by bagging all yard waste in paper bags. Never sweep leaves directly into the street. This can cause stormwater inlets to become blocked and could lead to flooding during fall storms.
