Monday, May 21 at Swamp Rabbit Café and Grocery, 5-7PM

Join some of the Upstate’s best food talent for a delicious fundraiser in support of the Sustainable Agriculture program at Greenville Technical College. Upstate farmers will be paired with local chefs to create small plates for attendees to enjoy while mingling in the new event space at Swamp Rabbit Café.

This year’s event features two students of the Sustainable Agriculture program, one participating as a chef and one as a farmer. Cheryl Kraus is the owner of Upcountry Provisions and Kimberly Ferlauto is a farmer with Valhalla Gardens, an eight-acre permaculture farm in Simpsonville. And as one of the most consistent supporters of local foods, Swamp Rabbit Café will pair with a farmer and provide a scratch-made dish as well.

Money raised will provide supplies and equipment for the Sustainable Agriculture program, which grows food used by the Culinary Arts program in their classes at Greenville Tech. The event is sponsored by Greenville County Farm Bureau and Slow Food Upstate.

Tickets are available for $25 each at and include all food and nonalcoholic beverages. Beer and wine will be available for purchase at the event.
