20 years ago, the idea of a twilight garden tour in Kensington would not have conjured up the idea of lighted pathways, exotic plants, and a green oasis. There was nary a plant or tree on the 2500 block of Cumberland Street. Today, Greensgrow is a bustling urban farm and nursery that boasts a large array of growing practices and greenery.
We invite you to spend an evening with us to get a glimpse of how vision and hard work can change a community while learning about a variety of creative ways to build green space in an urban environment.
The evening will include curated, small group tours of the nursery that are designed to inform and inspire you. Enjoy seasonal fruit paired with locally made cheeses from the award winning Valley Milkhouse. Sweet treats from Nutmeg Cake Design, Lil’ Popshop and Cake Life Bake Shop. Philadelphia Brewing Company and Rowhouse Spirits will be serving beer and spirits made just blocks from the farm. Jazz pianist, Patrick Fitzgerald will play throughout the twilight.
PLEASE NOTE: Cancellations within 72 hours of the start of the event are nonrefundable or transferable. Refunds and transfers requested earlier than 72 hours before the event start time will be charged a $5.00 processing fee.
