WestportNow.com Image
Westport-based Green Village Initiative (GVI) today held the grand opening in Bridgeport of the Reservoir Community Farm, a 1.5-acre urban farm located at 1469 Reservoir Ave. in the northern section of the city. Mayor Bill Finch (l) was on hand with Westporters Monique Bosch and Dan Levinson, founder of GVI. The event inaugurated the farm’s weekly farm stand and celebrated its first harvest, which includes more than 1,000 heads of local, organic lettuce delivered to Bridgeport public school cafeterias. The farm, with more than 100 raised garden beds, will serve as the “hub” of a network of 30-plus GVI-built school gardens in the city. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Helen Klisser During for WestportNow.com
