20th Anniversary Benefit for Greensgrow

Saturday, June 10, 2017, 6–10pm at the Philadelphia Brewing Company

Join Philly’s nationally-recognized urban farm and garden center at a unique celebration in honor of our 20th Anniversary. Greensgrow will transform the tasting room and open-air courtyard of the Philadelphia Brewing Company for a special night of tastings and entertainment celebrating the unique and diverse food scene in Kensington. Greensgrow has been helping create, supply and support our neighborhood’s food community since 1997. Our favorite local chefs will provide samples of signature dishes, including farm-to-table hor d’oeuvres from the Greensgrow’s Community Kitchen and PBC beer and cider straight from the source will keep it festive. Join us as a guest for a VIP reception to explore spirit samplings from the blossoming craft distillery movement in Kensington, and an option to bid early on unique experiences and offerings from our community of partners.

Eat, drink, and celebrate with new and old friends as you enjoy a summer evening in this special venue, and support Greensgrow – Growers of food, flowers and neighborhoods. Find out more about Greensgrow here.
