As a VIP guest, you will also have the opportunity to take a special twilight tour of the MicroFarm guided by members of the Groundwork Elizabeth Green Team.

At 6PM, all guests will be invited to settle in to the MicroFarm greenhouse for an intimate family-style dinner featuring a creative and garden-fresh menu created by Chef Mike Carrino.

Tickets for VIP Cocktail Reception & Dinner are $65. Dinner-only tickets are $50. Sponsorship packages, which include up to eight tickets for this event, are also available online. Seating is limited! Purchase tickets online today at bit.ly/UrbanFarmDinnerTkts.
