5 Church Hill Rd, Woodbury, CT Phone: 203-263-3711 .
4-6 pm. To celebrate Flanders Nature Center's first beginnings as a working farm, the Art Committee of Flanders will host a 1920's themed Farm Tea. In 1926, on a visit to friends in Southbury, 25-year-old New York artist Natalie Van Vleck fell in love with a farm on Flanders Road in Woodbury. She promptly persuaded her parents to buy it, and so set in train the events that led to the jewel in the crown of Woodbury, Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust. To celebrate her accomplishments, the first annual traditional Flanders Farm Tea will feature a wide range of teas as well as local jams and jellies, homemade cakes, scones, sandwiches and cookies served by Art Committee members in period costume. A highlight will be a raffle for a basket filled with locally-sourced items, with its centerpiece, a teapot by Washington's Will Talbot of Bell Hill Pottery. $25 pp.
