The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station(CAES) Plant Science Day is held at Lockwood Farm in Hamden on the first Wednesday of August every year, beginning in 1910. This one-day event features reports on research, field plots, barn exhibits, tours, and other opportunities for Connecticut residents and attendees to discuss many topics of plant science on an informal basis and interact with CAES scientists and staff. While the event only lasts one day, planning for Plant Science Day is a year-round activity spearheaded by the Plant Science Day Activity Committee. Lockwood Farm on 890 Evergreen Avenue in Hamden is a research facility of the CAES. The property was purchased in 1910 and has expanded from 19.6 acres to 75 acres today.
