Doors open at 5:45 – film starts promptly at 6:00.
The event is BYOB. Sustainable movie snacks will be provided.
Tickets | $15
Come enjoy a Summer evening with tomatoes, beer, and wine to celebrate our tomato harvest from Rushton Farm! Try a variety of tomatoes presented in multiple ways – simply sliced or in tasty preparations.
The Tomato Tasting is located at Rushton Farm at Rushton Woods Preserve, where we sustainably grow food on protected land. Rushton Farm and Rushton Woods Preserve is part of the Community Farm Program of Willistown Conservation Trust. Our farm is managed as a vibrant ecosystem that enhances the surrounding landscape.
This year, we are requiring advance registration due to limited capacity. Tickets are $25 for CSA members and $35 for non-CSA members. Please also consider making an additional donation to support the work of the Trust.
Starts at 5:00 pm and ends at 7:00 pm
We regret this event has been canceled.
Become a steward to the land and water by planting trees along Ridley Creek with Willistown Conservation Trust! And have fun, too!
As human development expands, Ridley Creek is increasingly inundated with excessive stormwater runoff and sediment from erosion, reducing stream health and threatening the environmental and recreational value of this waterway.
Streamside trees, also known as riparian forest buffers, can combat these threats by filtering stormwater runoff and stabilizing streambanks, thereby improving water quality and reducing erosion. To this end, Willistown Conservation Trust, a land trust with nearly 40 years of history preserving and managing natural land, has received $55,600 to plant 5 acres of trees along Ridley Creek.
You can help protect Ridley Creek from stormwater pollution and transform our natural landscape for generations to come simply by planting trees with us!
At this fun and rewarding event, you will make a positive impact on your community and stream health, network with like-minded neighbors, and learn about the value of streamside forests. This is an excellent community service and learning opportunity for anyone from individual volunteers, to corporate groups, to faith communities, to schools!
This is just the first of what will be several tree planting and stewardship events organized by Willistown Conservation Trust as we work to plant 5 streamside acres with trees!
