The Last Green Valley Announces Fundraising Events
Acorn Adventure – Pixie Village Hike: 10 a.m., Aug. 25, Natchaug State Forest Parking Area on Iron Mine Lane, off Route 89 in Ashford. Join Chief Ranger Bill Reid on a half-mile hike into Pixie Falls, an enchanting area where the Pixie’s have a village and we can help them by building new homes for them with the twigs, leaves, moss and more that we find in the area. Truly, one of the splendid spots in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor, this hike is suitable for little legs who can make it a half-mile into the falls and then back out. The trail is not stroller friendly. Call Fran at 860-774-3300 for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>. Acorn Adventures are sponsored by Putnam Bank. The Last Green Valley’s Tastes of the Valley: 4 p.m., Aug. 26, The Publick House, Sturbridge Ma. Tastes of the Valley is a unique dining experience only available once a year as part of a major fundraiser for TLGV.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.thelastgreenvalley.org<http://www.thelastgreenvalley.org> or by calling 860-774-3300. All funds raised are used to support the mission of TLGV. The evening starts with a social hour featuring local wines, beers and beverages, as well as appetizers prepared by area chefs utilizing products farmed in the 35 towns of The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. Guests will then be invited into the main dining room where they will be treated to an amazing multi-course, sit-down, farm-to-table dinner showcasing dishes created specifically for our event by some of the area’s top chefs. Seated at each table will be a special guest – either a local farmer, vintner, brewer or agriculture expert for you to converse with as you learn more about what it takes to keep The Last Green Valley green and delicious. The end of the evening features a dessert buffet and live auction featuring guest auctioneer Gene Michael Deary. Silent auctions and a raffle will be held throughout the evening.
