Awesome things to do in Philadelphia: Philly Stake
This weekend we submitted our application for Philly Stake, a "locally sourced, recurring dinner in which money is raised for creative & relevant community engaged projects. As a micro granting program, community members become creators". The next dinner is Sunday, July 17th at Bartram's Gardens and we are hoping to be picked as one of the 10 projects chosen to present at the event!
How it works: You pay a sliding scale ($10-$20) for a 3 course dinner of in season, local ingredients. During the dinner, 10 groups or individuals present their projects. The attendees vote on the idea they would most like to fund and at the end, one of the projects is awarded a micro grant. Amazing...!
