Meet Your Greens at Smith Farm Thursday 8/16

On Thursday, this month's Meet Your Greens will be held at Smith Farm in East Haddam, a farm offering meaningful work to people with developmental disabilities, and providing food to the Brian House group home and the local community.

Farm Manager and Job Coach Sue Perrotti will give us a tour of the farm and discuss with us the many facets of the farm operations–the CSA, its organic farming practices, its vocational training program, and more. Afterwards we’ll have a picnic. Bring your own snacks and drinks.

Gentle rain or shine (in case of another torrential downpour we'll postpone until 8/23).

Meet at Smith Farm (60 Smith Road in East Haddam) at 5:30pm.  More details at rockfallfoundation.org.

And for those of you not familiar with Meet Your Greens: Middletown Green Drinks, this monthly event provides networking opportunities for anyone who is interested in making connections and exchanging news about emerging environmental issues to help keep Lower Connecticut River Valley communities green and growing. An official location of Green Drinks International, this informal monthly gathering of people drawn from the community, nonprofit groups and the business world offers time to brainstorm ideas and plant seeds for collaboration. All are welcome and there is no admission fee, unless otherwise noted.
