Hosted by Greensgrow & Philly Foodworks
A benefit for our SNAP Share Program, making a healthy local farm share accessible to everyone.
Greensgrow will host four Farm Dinners throughout 2019 in partnership with Philly Foodworks to benefit our SNAP Share program because we believe that nutritious, local food should be accessible to everyone.
Join us for an evening to celebrate the local food system at the height of the growing season. Dinner will feature a four course meal by worker-owned 1149 Cooperative inspired by summer produce, grown right here at Greensgrow Farms and at A.T. Buzby Farm in Salem County, NJ. The 1149 Cooperative were named “Rising Stars” by Eater for their focus on social justice through food. Meet the chefs, farmers and food artisans while you enjoy mead from Philadelphia Mead Well, and live jazz throughout the evening with V. Shayne Frederick Ensemble.
Support accessible local food and meet people in your community that believe that nurtured landscapes and good food connects us all.

Philly Foodworks makes buying, eating, and sharing fresh food as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible. They work with a diverse group of producers and distributors to navigate the challenges faced by producing outside of the mainstream commodity food system. They feel that food is how people connect to themselves, the land, and their community. By engaging with food more consciously, we can build a world that nurtures these connections.
A.T. Buzby Farm is a family farm in rural Salem County, New Jersey. They grow a variety of fresh produce for local markets on 190 acres. Andrew and Dawn Buzby established the farm in 1981 as a labor of love. This love continues today and has spread to other friends and family who now help on the farm. A.T. Buzby Farm is dedicated to producing safe, healthy food in a way that is sustainable environmentally, economically, and socially.
The 1149 Cooperative mission is to provide a seat at the table for all our neighbors; black folks, folks of color, folks with disabilities, immigrants, women, queer and trans people, and everyone with intersections of these identities. Inclusion is at the center of what they do.
V. Shayne Frederick Ensemble
V. Shayne Frederick is a jazz pianist, vocalist, arranger and musical director with performances spanning two decades. Cited by the Broad Street Review as “one of the region’s busiest and best jazz singers,” V. Shayne has been appointed as “one to watch” and a “shining light” by All About Jazz.
