A choice 30-acre property at the heart of Redding has been preserved as an oasis of unspoiled nature through a purchase made possible by a State grant to the Town and to the Redding Land Trust – and with matching funds from the Trust as well as support from the Aquarion Water Company. The process of winning a grant supported by the Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition Grant Program from the Department of Energyand Environmental Protection, initiated in 2014, reached a successful conclusion at the closing celebrated on Friday, September 9 at Redding Town Hall.

What was more perfect – the clear blue summer sky or the unspoiled beauty of the landscape at the Wine Talk/Meadow Walk benefit party sponsored by the Redding Land Trust on Saturday, August 27, at the Jones Meadow off Poverty Hollow Road? Some 80 guests at the inaugural event were met with a glass of the evening’s signature drink, a Meadow Mocktail, before ascending on the mown paths and circles of the 4.6 acre property, where hors d’oeuvres and drinks were served midway and at the summit of the rise. Given the warmth of the August afternoon, guests settled in the shade of a nearby grove to hear the featured speakers and to socialize.
In welcoming the crowd, Mary Ann Carman, RLT trustee and benefit chairman, mentioned two recent items of Trust news – its national re-accreditation and its financial help in securing with the Town a prime Redding property as open space. Next sommelier Codey Foster described the Spanish Roija wines being served to guests by Ancona’s Wines and Liquors, one of the event’s sponsors.
