Flatbread Supports Local Organic Farm

Thanks to all of our friends at Flatbread Company in Canton, Connecticut who sponsored a great fundraiser in support of Urban Oaks Organic Farm. What a great evening and community gathering it was!

Special thanks to Avon’s own Al Guimares, who definitely set the tone for a great event with his awesome and original acoustic performance.

Other highlights from the evening included fresh Urban Oaks greens and herbs for sale, CLEAN FOOD book signing, and our extremely popular raffle prizes ranging from a seven course tasting dinner donated by the Pond House Restaurant in Hartford to golf for four at The Farms Country Club in Wallingford, CT!

Flatbread generously donated a percent of every pizza consumed, as well as a $50 gift certificate for our raffle, and supported the farm even more by featuring two special pizza’s that night made from Urban Oaks produce – one with fingerling potatoes, kale, leeks and rosemary and the other with tomatillos, poblano peppers and chicken. YUM!!!

The event was such a success and so much fun that we’ll definitely be doing it again, so stay tuned for more details!

But for now, the work continues and volunteers are welcome to become part of the Urban Oaks community by helping with outdoor clean-up and planting in the greenhouses. If you can spare an hour… or an afternoon!… please call Beth at 860-827-0202 or email beth.king@comcast.net. Thanks and see you at the farm!
