Interested in “do-it-yourself” home projects that save you money, are better for your health, and help the environment? If so, come join us in this fun, hands-on workshop to learn how to make all-natural, affordable, non-toxic home cleaning products, such as glass/mirror, carpet, and all-purpose cleaners.

We'll also feature a lesson about creative reuse, where we will guide you through fun crafting projects to turn everyday items that you might usually discard into something useful for your home. Specific reuse craft projects will include transforming used cotton fabric (e.g., old T-shirt) into a substitute for plastic Saran wrap and a used glass bottle into an Olla plant watering system for your garden.

Lunch will be provided!
