Nature’s Food Patch Dunedin Invites Community to Earth Day Celebration on April 20th
In honor of Earth Day, your local and organic grocery store, Nature’s Food Patch Market & Café, is proud to sponsor the Dunedin Community Garden’s annual Gather for the Garden fundraiser at their new downtown Dunedin location on Saturday, April 20th from 10 am to 3 pm.
The Dunedin community, along with Nature’s Food Patch, prides itself on being environmentally friendly & eco-conscious. All proceeds from the event will benefit the garden to help grow and maintain organic gardens.
The celebration kicks off at 10 am with an Intro to Tai Chi class hosted by the Taoist Tai Chi Society on the Gerald Rehm Pavilion outside of the grocery store. Guests can practice Tai Chi for $5 per person.
Guests can purchase raffle tickets to enter to win an assortment of gift baskets and prize items. Music will be provided by local DJ A-Dawg, owner of WKID96.7FM. Guests can enjoy free face paintings and caricature drawings by Nature’s Food Patch team members Georgia Gallucci and Lora Humphrey. Attendees can also relax with free chair massages by Chris Schmidt. Demos and free food samples will be available throughout the event starting at 11 am.
All day, customers can “round up” their purchase at the registers to the next dollar amount. All round up donations will also benefit the garden. Guests are encouraged to bring their reusable bags. For every reusable bag, The Patch will donate 5 cents to the garden all month long! Nature’s Food Patch will match customer donations up to $500.
Mark your calendars for this incredibly exciting, free, family-friendly event! Visit their Facebook event page for the latest updates, including a schedule of events and more: http://bit.ly/Gather4theGarden
About Nature’s Food Patch
Nature’s Food Patch Market & Café (est. 1987) is an organic independent natural foods community grocery store & café with two locations in Clearwater and Downtown Dunedin. The store has been enthusiastically embraced by the health-minded community and is known for its commitment to organic foods, quality natural products, community involvement and health education. Their vision is to serve and inspire their community in order to build a healthier world.
On Earth Day in 2008, Nature’s Food Patch began its ‘Ban the Bag’ Campaign. Since that time, the store no longer uses plastic bags in its stores. To encourage customers to bring their own re-usable bag, they offer a 5¢ donation per bag to a different charitable organization each month.
