11th Annual Citizens for Easton Farm Tour

FARM TOUR IS SATURDAY AUGUST 10TH!!!

This year’s celebration of Easton’s farms will take place on Saturday, August 10, from 10am to 2pm. The self-guided tour of Easton farms will begin at Samuel Staples Elementary School Pavilion, 515 Morehouse Road, Easton, Connecticut,  to receive a map –  the map serves as your event pass, which lists all participating farms,  and activity locations.

The farm tour is free, but you need the map to obtain entrance to certain events and be eligible to receive free goodies.

At the Pavilion we will have food trucks, a field for games orchestrated by our very own Joel from the ECC, Dunk a Cop, Master Gardeners, Master Composters, a free prize drawing which includes many donations from Easton’s farms and businesses. There will also be representatives from the Pollinator Pathway Project, who will provide informational materials regarding the pathway from the Hudson to the Housatonic and how to have your property become a part of it!

The day will include many family-oriented activities including tastings, Easton Garden Club and Easton Historical Society events, antique farm tool exhibits, and games. Families can visit a petting zoo and tour greenhouses.  Easton Garden Club volunteers will provide lessons and fun for children.  Everyone will be able to sample Easton grown and harvested veggies and fresh fruits and learn about beekeeping, gardening and composting. Throughout the day there will be food and entertainment and old-time fun and games.  Opportunities to learn about “growing your own” and composting will be at the Master Gardener and Master Composter booths.

P&Z PUBLIC HEARING, MONDAY MAY 20, 2019 6PM @ HELEN KELLER

On Monday May 20th 6 PM, at the Helen Keller Cafetorium, P&Z will hold a hearing on the proposed zoning regulations.

We are very concerned with these regulations as they restrict how homeowners may use their properties including but not limited to restrictions on home businesses, storage of boats , trailers and other recreational vehicles. Also included are descriptions of permissible businesses in the newly created Easton Village District.

See the prior post below (CitizensforEaston.org) for a link to the Draft Regulations.Please consider attending this very important public hearing.
