Farmers are out picking fresh from their fields so that The Last Green Valley’s volunteers can gather up and deliver their delectable harvest to the finest chefs in the region for Tastes of the Valley on Sunday, September 18, from 5 – 7 pm at The Mansion at Bald Hill in Woodstock, CT. Tastes of the Valley features food grown and raised in the National Heritage Corridor, expertly prepared by the best chefs, while showcasing the skills of local farmers, cheese makers, vintners and brewers. Hosted by The Last Green Valley, Inc., (TLGV), Tastes of the Valley is the nonprofit’s annual feast and fundraiser. A limited number of tickets are still available to the food-loving public at $65 per person for TLGV members and $75 for not-yet-members, but you must act quickly before they sell out! For tickets call 860-774-3300 or go to www.thelastgreenvalley.org, click on “Shop” and then “Events.”
This popular event raises funds and awareness for TLGV with auctions and raffle baskets, featuring awesome overnight stays, spectacular deals from local businesses, farms and artists, and unique, priceless experiences. But, hold onto your hats because this year will feature a new “Green for Green Giving” pledge drive!
