The good folks at Greensgrow Farms are teaming up with Philadelphia Brewing Co., and a diverse group of restaurants ranging from Fishtown’s French and fabulous Pickled Heron to the South Philadelphia Tap Room for Friday’s Whole Hog fundraiser at the brewery. The feast will, of course, feature a whole roasted pig, plus a huge spread of everything from pulled pork sliders from Johnny Brenda’s to mac and cheese from Memphis Taproom. And it can all be yours for the cost of $75 ($50 for CSA members).

All proceeds form the event will go to the maintenance and operation of the Greensgrow Community Kitchen. The facility, which was launched in 2010, helps grow local businesses involved in developing and preparing food for resale. The kitchen also serves as the distribution point for Greensgrow’s low-income CSA initiative and hosts a variety of educational food-related workshops throughout the year. This year’s workshops will include pickling with ‘s Marisa McClellan, mozzarella making with Marcie Turney, and a hand-rolled pasta program headed by Garces Trading Co.‘s Greg Ciprioni.

Tickets are still available, and can be purchased via Eventbrite. Check Greensgrow’s website for additional details.
