Earth Day 2012 @ Green in BKLYN (Sun. 4/22)
Just around the corner is our favorite holiday… It’s Earth Day, of course! Kind of like Mother’s Day but for your other mother (Earth).
As the eco-friendly shop we are & ‘cuz it’s also the shop’s anniversary (three years this year), we love this day! And in celebration, we’d love you to love it too.
So we’ve scheduled a few things we thought you might like. This year, along with Myrtle Avenue’s Farm to Neighborhood program, we’re focusing on local food sources and ways to make your own (food, that is). Also a big ol’ sale and a raffle! Details are below…
EARTH DAY SCHEDULE (SUNDAY, APRIL 22nd):
- 12-1:30pm: Farm to Neighborhood
- Community Chef Roisin Wisneski from Myrtle Eats Fresh shares recipes from stuff you can grow at home & hints on how you can do said growing. Think cucumbers, mint & more on rooftops, terraces & in window boxes.
- 1:30-2pm: Clementine Vegan Bakery
- The folks from Clementine Bakery will be handing out tasty treats & talking about baking without animal products. Good food & animal free. With cinnamon buns to die for!
- 2-3:30pm: Plovgh CSA
- Plovgh CSA (community supported agriculture) helps farms sell their harvest directly to you. Crops you want, when you want them, from farms you know. Talk to them about getting your “share” – signing up for it or picking it up.
- 4-5:30pm: Brooklyn Beekeepers Club
- Brooklyn Beekeepers Club President, Michael Hegedus (aka the Naked Beeman), hosts a local honey tasting & talks about how to start your own beehive. His Three Sisters Honey comes from down the block & around the corner straight onto our shelves.
- All Day: Pick a Prize…
- Spend $42 or more (for Earth Day’s 42nd year), then pick a prize from our bucket o’ gifties. It’s like a grab bag & raffle all in one!
- The Day Before (Saturday 4/21): Pangea
- They’re back! The folks from Pangea Organics Skin Care will pass out more samples & answer questions about your face & their line.
- All Month: 42% off Select Treasures
- In Celebration of Earth Day’s 42nd Anniversary & Green in BKLYN’s B-Earth Day (3 years old!) we’ll have all kinds of treasures marked 42% off!
We hope you’ll join us for some (or all) of the fun on Earth Day. We love Earth Day, we love being here & we love you!
