Natural Awakenings Fairfield Cty/Housatonic Valley, CT

Charitable Earth Day Celebration at Chamomille

Apr 01, 2014 02:04AM

On April 22, in honor of Earth Day, Chamomille Natural Foods in Danbury will donate 10 percent of the day’s profits to Heifer International and host a day-long demo event featuring local vendors.

Heifer International promotes sustainable agriculture and commerce in poverty-stricken parts of the world. Rather than simply giving people food, the organization provides poor villages with cows, hens and bees for a continual supply of milk, eggs and honey. As the animals reproduce, the abundance of food increases.

Raw food demos will begin at 10:30am where visitors can learn to make a few easy, no-cook recipes. Between noon and 3pm, Maria, a Zuzu cosmetics makeup artist, will offer complimentary makeovers. The beekeepers from Living Foods Gang Honey will be onsite from 12:30 to 5pm to talk about the life of bees. From 3 to 5pm, visitors can bring their kids to meet the kids, as the owners of Goat Boy Soap Company will drop by with baby goats. There will be plenty of free samples offered throughout the day.

Chamomille Natural Foods is located at Route 6 Plaza, 58-60 Newtown Rd, Danbury. For more information, call 203-792-8952 or visit ChamomilleNaturalFoods.com. See ad, page 24.
