Part 3: DIY Household Goods
Wed, May 5 | 12:10-1pm

Kim Guess, RD and Nicole Castillo

Making Do-It-Yourself (DIY) household goods can save money and enhance your sense of self-sufficiency, which can boost your self esteem, self confidence, and provide a healthy sense of achievement. In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to make useful items for your home or to give as gifts. Join us as we make foaming hand soap, room spray, seed paper, and beeswax wraps. You can preview the supply list ahead of time and we highly recommend following along with us live. All of these items use eco-friendly materials and can help you reduce waste.
