Tickets are now on sale for the Darien Land Trust’s Farm to Table Dinner on Saturday, August 27, at 6 p.m. Waterbury Field will once again come alive with twinkling lights and white-linen tables set with wildflowers for 250 guests to dine at a Darien Land Trust property.
A cocktail reception will kick off the evening at 6 p.m. with not only a cocktail, but wines from Sipstirs and craft beer from Two Roads Brewing. The reception will be followed by dinner served in the field. Live music will be provided by Merlin, a Westchester-Fairfield cover band playing rock classics.
— an announcement from The Darien Land Trust
A three-course menu sourced from local farms has been created by Rebecca Thorpe of Copper Cricket Events. Wine pairings for these courses have been recommended by Sipstirs of Darien and will be offered at a discounted price for guests of Farm to Table, so they can buy their wine ahead of time and bring it to the event.
Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the work of the Darien Land Trust, an organization that preserves and protects over 225 acres of open space in Darien. Preserving open space benefits our community by maintaining the rural character of our town and by providing scenic meadows and woodlands, including three properties that feature walking trails: Dunlap Woods, Olson Woods and the trails at Cherry Lawn.
“The DLT Board looks forward to welcoming our supporters, present and future, to the beautiful meadow at Waterbury Field,” said Land Trust President John O’Brien. “Our ‘truly’ Farm to Table Dinner is a great opportunity to casually enjoy a wonderful evening in a spectacular setting.”
