Join the Co-op Fall Celebration!
GOOD FOOD + GREAT SOUND Come out for Greene Hill Food Co-op’s Fall Celebration, co-hosted by Bed-Stuy’s own Sound Liberation Front (SLF)!
Who? Everyone in the neighborhood, even if you're not a Member of the Co-op! What's it Cost? Nothing! It's FREE! When? Saturday, October 6, from noon to 6pm. Where? The Putnam Triangle.
DANCE! SLF will premiere their custom "Tower of Sound" and their rockin' DJ Crew will be spinning old-school reggae, funk, soul, and afrobeat for the community to get down!
EAT! Food samples will be offered from sustainable, local and organic vendors including Equal Exchange, Granola Labs, and GrowNYC, and local restaurants like Luv Tea and Cochinita Tacos will be selling their favorites dishes.
LEARN! Cooking demonstrations from the Greene Hill Food Co-op's own Education Committee will give helpful tips to members and guest shoppers on exciting ways to use our fresh, delicious ingredients.
For all ages, Shambhala Yoga and Dance Center will be offering dance lessons and performances including afrocize, salsa, and kids’ dance. Yoga sessions from Free School Yoga will help keep the crowd limber.
BK Farmyards will introduce live chickens for backyard farming education and New York’s Office of Recycling Outreach and Education (OROE) will host activities that promote recycling and waste-prevention for all types of materials.
HAVE FUN! Kids can enjoy face painting, children’s music, and a puppeteer from Brooklyn’s own Puppetry Arts. Other educational activities include gardening, worm composting and greenhouse how-to sessions.
If you're feeling artistic, you can add your thoughts, ideas and drawings to the "Community Message Boards" a public art activity (and part of the Co-op's Backyard Mural Project) with artwork by Brooklyn Artist and Co-Op Member Melissa Godoy Nieto facilitated by Community Member Julie Flynn. Or simply bring a t-shirt or bag for on-site silk screening!
And to top it off—for this day only—Greene Hill Food Co-op will be open to non-members to check out our store and shop!
It's going to be an awesome day so come out and have fun! Tell your friends!
