Fodor Farmers in the N.Y. Times!

This morning Fodor farm was visited by a photographer and writer from the NY Times. They interviewed several of the gardeners and took lots of photographs. The article will be in the CT Lifestyles section in about 2 weeks. If you see a picture of a sweaty woman with messy hair and no make-up, thats me! You never know when your 15 minutes of fame will strike.

There were some city employees there as well, dont know their names or titles, but I overheard someone say the word “Mayor”.  Rumor has it our garden will be expanded to include several more patches for the public to use, as well as a pumpkin patch and apple orchard. WOOHOO Now I wont have to drive all the way to Lymans anymore! One of the beautiful yet currently dilapidated homes is sitting patiently waiting to be restored. Im a big fan of preservation and restoration and cannot wait to see how all of the projects turn out. If anyone has any information on the article or the upcoming projects for the farm, please share!

P.S.-This is not a forum to complain about how tax dollars are being used-if you think this is a waste of money that could/should have been used elsewhere, there is a great blog to vent your frustrations: www.yourCT.com

    The group that was visiting on Sat. was the city council.

    Yes, there are a lot of big plans for the remaining 8 acres of Fodor Farm, but they are all conditional on grants being secured to fund it all. We are in the process of applying for another large grant, and when we know more we will definitely share!

    Thank you for clarifying that! We’re all wishing for the best. If additional volunteers are needed please let me know. I dont have much time to offer right now (I work long days in the city) but maybe down the line if I get a new job. Which will be soon. I hope.
