We're relatively new to this area and still haven't found many like-minded souls for friendship, support, play dates, etc. (especially those interested in extended breast feeding, whole/traditional foods, and living simply). I'm mom to a joyous 2.5 year old and would love to connect!
Bumping up for more input!

I'm in Norwalk CT. I have a almost 5 year old DS and a 10 Month old DD. Welcome to the area!!
Playdates are probably out but I'm always up for having likeminded, supportive moms in my area.
You may want to consider joining the Fairfield County chapter of Holistic moms. The meetings are in Norwalk on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. Let me know if interested and I can send you the details :)

I'm in West Haven on the Milford border so only about 20 mins away. My girls are only 4.5 mos old though. I help run a Pathways connect meeting though once a month in Stratford for likeminded moms. It meets the 3rd Thursday morning at 10 am at True Health Chiropractic. We just had our first meeting this past week. Here is the FB group for it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/295903723871584/
Also there is a crunchy moms FB page. The moms are spread through out the state but you may be able to find other moms close to you: https://www.facebook.com/groups/456564731029395/

The Holistic Moms Meeting in Norwalk CT is always very informative and well organised. We had the best time at The Stand last night!
For breastfeeding and parenting support I also like LLL meetings in Stanford & Greeenwich.
the re is also local homeschooling group
The most active group with lots of playdates and a favorite program run by moms "playschool" is the Fairfield County Attachment Parenting Group that is on meetup.com; there is a small donation to be part of the group that then pays for meetup.com and lending library.
Hope to see you in one of the get-togethers!
