    Workshop Details:
    Fermentation transforms vegetables into something alchemical indeed. Learn the basics of the art of vegetable lacto-fermentation that produces our favorite tangy probiotic pickles & try some samples of creative kimchis and krauts with Andrea from Edible Alchemy in this workshop.

    Seating is limited.

Fruit shares  will be beginning with peaches and other juicy stone fruits like plums & pluots, & we’ll see the last of the blueberries, the bulk of the apple harvest (so good!) as well as pears, grapes, and cranberries.  YUM

    What you put in your body directly affects your health.  What you put ON your body does the same, too!  Your skin, your largest organ, is the barrier for your body against pathogens, dirt, and foreign objects.  It is also incredibly absorbent, taking in what is put on it and bringing it into the body and bloodstream.

    For this reason, it’s very important to know what the effects of your personal care products are!  Many mainstream personal care product ingredients are unregulated and created from petrochemicals and harsh materials.  Many products need counter-products (shampoo/conditioner, soap/lotion), and marketing helps to create an image of need around certain products (deodorant, perfume, cosmetics).

    Use healthy, whole foods on and in your body to bring you to better health, and be aware of how they are affecting you.  Ingredients such as olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, baking soda, aloe juice, apple cider vinegar, peppermint, lavender, beeswax, and honey can be blended together to create effective products and tasty, nourishing foods.

    Join Andrea at the Eco Collective to learn the basics of creating natural skincare remedies for the coming spring season. Identify where your own skin could use a boost, then indulge in an edible mask to purify and detoxify your skin. Andrea shows you how to create a customized toner to balance your skin’s pH, before sharing her secrets for mixing up basic products like lavender-scented deodorant, a coffee-cinnamon scrub, and an herbal vinegar  made with dried herbs & spices. Leave armed with nourishing, all-natural products and the know-how to mix up your own concoctions at home.

    Materials:  Bring 5 small 1-2oz reused containers :: old hotel bottles, hot sauce containers, take out containers, and small bottles work well!
