Grown & Gathered – a farm to table experience

By June 7, 2017Uncategorized

The Downtown Johnson City Foundation is fusing farm, fresh food with a good cause for their annual farm-to-table experience. The intimate dinner, Grown & Gathered, will benefit Downtown Johnson City Foundation’s efforts towards downtown improvements.

Grown & Gathered will take place on Sunday, July 23. The dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails in the amphitheater and the dinner will be served in the Pavilion at Founders Park.

Grown & Gathered is a seasonal feast prepared by Jamie Dove and Elise Clair and their team from The Main Street Pizza Company and River Creek Farm. The dinner will feature the bounty from 30 local farms and producers. This year, portions of the meal will be served rodizio style. A beautiful menu with an Appalachian Korean fusion flair will be served.

Tickets for the farm-to-table dinner will be $75 per person. Last year was a sell out, so we recommend getting tickets early.  Tickets can be purchased at the WCEDC offices, 300 E. Main Street, Suite 406, Johnson City or on Eventbrite.

Local wine expert, Rick Jelovsek has sourced some excellent wines that pair well with our menu, but small producers don’t have the marketing budgets to donate the amount we need. We’re looking for some generous wine lovers to join our Grown & Gathered Bacchus Club. A donation of $100 would sponsor a case of local/regional wine. In return, you will …

> be listed on the menu as a member of the Bacchus Club.

> receive special recognition during dinner.

> receive early notification of next year’s dinner before it is advertised to the public.

Most importantly, you will be supporting local/regional wine producers and helping promote them to hundreds of wine and food lovers! To join the Bacchus club, go to Eventbrite.
