UPDATE:  This event has been postponed due to expect bad weather. Woodcock Nature Center will update when it is rescheduled.

Woodcock Nature Center is hosting an intimate event with Ridgefield chef and author Cristina Lombardozzi and Ridgefield farmer Pete Campbell as a fundraiser in support of the nature center’s community programs. Woodcock officials invite guests to join them on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. for an afternoon of great food and engaging discussion about the many health benefits of eating locally sourced, sustainable foods that also nourish the soul.

Attendees will enjoy samples from recipes in Lombardozzi’s new cookbook, Nourished. From Field to Fork, which is inspired by visits to Woodcock board member Campbell’s Horseshoe Farm and includes beautiful photographs by her daughter, Kate. Using Campbell’s fresh produce, the book showcases recipes that align with the low-allergen, low-inflammation eating style Lombardozzi recommends to her clients.

At the event, guests will learn more about Lombardozzi’s approach to eating and wellness developed from her experience as a certified nutritional coach, an AFAA certified personal trainer, and spinning and TRX training instructor. Guests will also sip Campbell’s famous margarita while hearing about his commitment to growing sustainably and re-connecting with nature before heading home with a special gift.

Tickets are $75 and include food and drink. Nourished. From Field to Fork will be available for purchase at the event for an additional $35. Proceeds benefit Woodcock Nature Center’s community programs. Special thanks to event sponsor Natures Temptation for providing fresh produce.
