Meet Your Greens with Gabe Russo of Forest City Farms
November 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for an interesting discussion with Gabe Russo of Forest City Farms. The family farm which produces organically grown food was established in 2014. The farm is located in the Central Connecticut River Valley on land leased from the City of Middletown. They are focused on contributing to the local sustainable food community in which we live. On the farm they grow a wide variety of heirloom produce which includes 40 varieties of vegetables, fruits and herbs which are sold at farmers markets, to local restaurants and distributed in local CSA farm shares. We are pleased to hold this Meet Your Greens event at the Herd Restaurant which uses produce grown at the Forest City Farms.
Meet Your Greens: Middletown Green Drinks 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. For more information, please call 860-347-0340.
