EVENT DETAILS
Join Catawba Brewing, Chef John Fleer of Rhubarb restaurant, and the Green Opportunities (GO) Kitchen Ready culinary training program for a freshly harvested farm dinner.

Five courses of farm-fresh food, including appetizers and dessert, will be paired with five courses of Catawba’s craft brews and craft beer cocktails. Guests are invited to tour the grounds of Gaining Ground Farm, which has been providing organic vegetables to Asheville citizens for twenty years. 
Check back in May for a full menu listing of delicious local meats and organic vegetables.

Proceeds from this event benefit Green Opportunities, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to train, support, and connect people from marginalized communities to sustainable employment pathways. 

At this dinner, Green Opportunities will officially kick-off a year-long celebration of their 10 year anniversary. Founded in May 2008, GO is celebrating 10 years of creating sustainable employment pathways for youth and adults with low-incomes and promoting economic justice in Asheville.  Green Opportunities' tuition-free Kitchen Ready culinary training program prepares Buncombe County residents for careers in the food service industry by pairing technical and life skills training with wrap-around support services. 

If you have a dietary restriction, please indicate so at the time you purchase your tickets by emailing Gwen@greenopportunities.org.
