Octagon celebrates community, farmers, local food and farmland preservation.
The first in a three part series Farmer’s Dinner will be held on June 28th at Octagon in Groton and will feature a reception, with speakers from some of the local farms, followed by a five course menu featuring locally grown produced and harvested items from this region’s best source of sustainable foods. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the CT Farmland Trust, whose sole mission is to permanently protect CT’s farmland.
