DARIEN — In the spirit of saving the land, the Darien Land Trust hosted an outdoor Farm-to Table-themed fundraiser dinner Saturday night at the Waterbury Field open space area.

“I’m pleased to announce we have a record attendance here with 240,” said Flip Huffard, president.

“At the heart of our mission is actually purchasing property permanently,” he said, noting seven-and-a-half acres were gotten this past year.

“We now have 215 acres,” he said, “which is really quite an accomplishment.”
