GRAZE Birmingham, farm to fork dinner

Graze Birmingham: Farm to Fork Dinner Showcases AL Foods, Supports ASAN

Graze Birmingham, a farm-to-fork picnic hosted by the Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network (ASAN), will take place from 5-8 p.m., Sunday, September 13th at Avondale Brewery.

Graze Birmingham is a fundraiser that helps support the work by ASAN and aims to showcase the people who plant, nurture, harvest, chop, peel, ferment, fire-roast, stew, and serve the absolute best of Central Alabama’s foods.

Farmer-chef pairs will serve dinner tapas-style in the shady backyard of Avondale Brewery. Guests will enjoy dinner, Avondale brews, and live music from Red Mountain White Trash.

Ticket sales fuel ASAN’s critical work building a food system where more Alabamians enjoy food that is raised responsibly by a growing pool of well-supported, diverse, homegrown Alabama farmers.

In an effort to make the Graze event accessible to as wide an audience as possible, ASAN is offering ticket prices at a sliding scale, which means guests can select their own ticket price, within the ranges given, as it relates to their ability to pay.

Ticket prices range from: Adults $25-$60, children (under 13) $4-$15

  • All adult tickets come with one drink ticket
  • Give $40+ and receive 6 tickets to “spend” at the raffle table (raffle tickets will be issued at entry, and are also available for purchase at the event)
  • Give $60+ and receive free individual membership to ASAN for a year

Tickets can be purchased at grazebham.brownpapertickets.com
