The Woodbridge Land Trust is pleased to announce that it has extended through Labor Day its fundraising campaign to Protect Scenic Baldwin Road Farm. According to Land Trust Board President Bryan Pines, “We have achieved nearly 70% of our goal, with almost 200 individual contributions.” The Trust hopes that the extended fundraising campaign will provide more people with the opportunity to be part of the effort to forever Protect Scenic Baldwin Road Farm.
The Protect Scenic Baldwin Road Farm fundraising campaign will enable the Trust, together with the State of Connecticut, Department of Agriculture to purchase the development rights to the 86-acre farm, located at 902 Baldwin Road, Woodbridge. Securing the development rights protects the farm forever from being subdivided or used for anything other than agriculture.
The Trust Board of Directors wishes to thank those who have donated. We also gratefully acknowledge the endorsements of the Town of Woodbridge, The Woodbridge Park Association, the Amity-Woodbridge Historical Society, The Garden Club of Woodbridge, Massaro Community Farm, and the Woodbridge Rotary Club. The Park Association and the Historical Society have made generous and substantial financial contributions. The Trust thanks these organizations for their support.
