Local Restaurants Support the Pop-Up Garden

June 13, 2011

Everyone is abuzz about the new PHS Pops Up garden on the vacant lot at 20th and Market streets in Center City Philadelphia. This garden raises awareness for City Harvest, a PHS initiative that provides fresh, locally grown food to those in underserved communities.

Six highly respected chefs are lending their talents to this cause. Joining the project are Daniel Stern of R2L, Guillermo Tellez of Square 1682, Chris Scarduzio of Table 31, Michael Schulson of Sampan, Marcie Turney of Barbuzzo, and Lynn Rinaldi of Paradiso, all of whom will create special dishes using the garden’s bounty and donate proceeds back to City Harvest.

Throughout the summer we’ll share delicious recipes from these accomplished chefs. In the meanwhile, check out their impressive bios after the jump. And thanks to the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC), Philly Homegrown, and the Center City District for their help in promoting City Harvest.
