Join us for some hot cocoa and discussion in Tim’s Kitchen to break down what all of the labels really mean for our planet, our food, and our families. All Ages Welcome!

Westport's Wakeman Town Farm's Tree Lighting has local soul. The farm committee brings in student singers and musicians from our local elementary schools to provide festive holiday music. This year, Broadway actress Susan Terry will sing a few holiday tunes and lead a festive sing-a-long. Volunteers pour hot cocoa and serve cookies and stoke up the bonfire for s'mores. As the sun goes down, the team lights the Tree, a tradition for three generations of the Wakeman family. Date is Fri. Dec. 7, starting at 4:30 p.m. Free and open to the public! Come one, come all to this wonderful community event! 134 Cross Highway, Westport.
