Farm Dinner

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.

Support accessible local food and meet people in your community that believe that nurtured landscapes and good food connects us all.

Greensgrow Farms | 2501 E. Cumberland Street | In the greenhouse
Doors & appetizers at 6pm | Dinner at 7pm


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.

Goat Rodeo Farm & Dairy is a 130 acre family owned farm located near Pittsburgh, PA. Use milk from their herd of more than 100 alpine and Nubian dairy goats and cow’s milk from neighboring Le-ara Farms to make a variety of fresh and aged cheeses using traditional techniques for artisan cheese production. Owners Steve & India started with one goat! Soon they became students of cheese and met wonderful, generous cheesemakers across the country. Soon it became clear that had found a calling and they began work on their creamery. By the time the creamery was completed, they had a happy herd of goats and some cheery neighboring cows all delighted to provide what would become the fruits of their labors. Goat Rodeo Cheeses.


Live Music: Silk and Honey is Joanna Osborne (vocals) and AJ DiBiase (guitar, mandolin, vocals).

See instructions on how to get a good sample here. They will use a handheld instrument that analyzes by X-ray fluorescence. The results are generally comparable to laboratory analyses. If participation is unusually high and you cannot wait for results, you can drop off the soil and provide us with a phone number and we will get back to you. Find out more about this testing method here.
