Community is at the heart of everything we do at Grow + Gather. From the friendly staff who greet you in The Feedery’s Market and Restaurant to the urban farm and management team working behind the scenes, together we strive to create a positive sense of community where everyone feels welcome and at home when they stop by.
Since we opened our doors in December, we’ve been planning more ways to show our commitment to cultivating community. If you follow us on social media, you may have noticed that at the beginning of the month, we kicked off “Spread the Love”, a two-week social media campaign leading up to our opening for dinner on Friday, Feb. 14 featuring some of the staff and neighbors who make the Grow + Gather community special.
With dinner service in full effect, The Feedery has updated operating hours:
Monday: 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday: 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
We know community is more than the food and drinks we serve, though. For us, community starts by shaking the hand that feeds you. It’s a belief that knowing your neighbor transforms coordinates on a map into a vibrant place you want to see thrive.
In our mission to cultivate community and become a lively community hub in Englewood, we’re excited to share two new programs getting underway this month. Starting on Saturday, Feb. 22, we’re hosting our second Grow + Gather Educational Events with “A Little Bit of Paradise: Build Your Own Terrarium” an informative and creative workshop by local business owner, Morgan Huston, of Birdsall & Co., a garden nursery and boutique. Twice a month you can count on similar fun and interesting presentations, workshops and special talks in The Pantry, all aimed at bringing together people who share common interests.
Then on Sunday, Feb. 23, we’ll begin our Sunday Supper, a family-style meal in our community space, The Pantry. Every Sunday we’ll offer a set menu to guests. With set seatings you’ll have a chance to connect with friends and strangers alike over a thoughtfully curated meal from our executive chef Jeff Scwhing. Check out the menu offerings through the month of March.
From the moment you walk into Grow + Gather, we hope you feel welcome. The next time you visit, let us know of more ways we can “spread the love.” Thanks for helping grow a one-of-a-kind community in Englewood!
