Announcing Friend-Raising Event!



We are hosting a FRIEND-RAISING event on April 2nd from 12:00-3:00 pm at the beautiful and historic Holcomb Farm property in Granby, CT. There are no obligations, financial or otherwise, for attending this event. We promise fun along with information.

What is a “FRIEND-RAISING” you ask? 

It is a gathering for folks like yourself who have expressed interest, curiosity or support of Outside Perspectives.  It is a chance to learn about the program, to share and eat delicious food together, and to meet and connect with others who are invested in getting youth outdoors! We’re looking for community connections with people who are interested in our mission and who might be in a position to help us.  Support could look like moral support (we need a lot of that :)) introductions to youth organizations, sharing our mission via word of mouth, connecting us with potential funders, becoming a board member or offering some other expertise you may have.

We will begin the afternoon with lunch. We’ll be enjoying locally sourced food including home-made brick oven pizzas with crusts generously donated by HUNGRY GHOST BAKERY, salad donated from HOLCOMB FARM CSA and delicious soup (hopefully from HEIRLOOM KITCHEN). Following lunch, we will give a presentation about Outside Perspectives followed by a Q&A. To round out the day, we will practice what we preach and go outside. All will be welcome to go on an optional guided or independent stroll on the woods trails around the farm.

If you know of anyone else who might be interested in joining us for this event, feel free to share this announcement. We’d love to meet them! Kids are welcome as well. RSVP to or

The event will take place at Holcomb Farm workshop space at 113 Simsbury Rd, West Granby, CT 06090 from 12:00-3:00 pm on April 2nd, 2017. As we will have some time outdoors, it is recommended to dress accordingly. You are welcome to stay as little or as long as you like. We have reserved a heated indoor space with restrooms for the presentation.

We hope to see you there!
