Working with New Britain's Urban Farmers

Urban Oaks
This week, I had the pleasure of touring Urth Farm in New Britain. I spoke with some of our local farmers as well as officials from the USDA about the work they do and how the state can better support them. Urth Farm occupies 2.5 acres of land on Oak Street where residents of surrounding neighborhoods are able to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables that may otherwise not be easily available to city residents. If you are looking for some fresh, locally grown produce, I encourage you to consider stopping by Urth Farm.

Summer Driving Season Begins with Gas Prices at 11-Year Lows

gas pricesThe AAA notes that the 2016 summer driving season is officially underway, and drivers are paying the lowest gas prices for this time of year in more than a decade.

Gas prices for the Memorial Day holiday were the cheapest since 2005--11 years ago--and were down 42 cents per gallon versus last year's holiday.

The average price for a gallon of gas in Connecticut as of June 3, 2016 was $2.46 per gallon--the same price it was in June of 2005.

I hope you enjoy the savings that these very low fuel prices are providing to you and your family, even as you enjoy a vacation or some sightseeing across our great state this summer.
