The nonprofit Fairgate Farm in Stamford is raising funds to provide 6 teak benches for its Outdoor Classroom under the Pellicci Pergola at Fairgate Farm. You can learn more about the project here

According to Vin Tufo, the chief executive officer of Charter Oak Communities, sponsor of the Farm, said: “In the past year, the number of visitors and volunteers to Fairgate Farm has doubled!”

“People of all ages are enjoying gardening, healthy activity, classes, relaxation, annual and corporate group events under the new Pellicci Pergola! The Pellicci Pergola is in the form of a grapevine-covered arbor where volunteers and other local residents can mingle while enjoying Fairgate Farm and appreciating the rich, cultural diversity of Stamford. Providing visual appeal and shade, grape vines native to the West Side are growing up the sides and will eventually cover the pergola, making it feel much like an ‘outdoor classroom’,” Tufo continued.
