Join me at my home in southern Maine for a retreat from your daily life and a chance to learn new skills, ignite your creativity, and gather with others.

Take time to nurture yourself while learning to use materials and techniques that are good for the planet. I’ll guide you through projects that encourage you to turn waste into abundance and introduce you to skills that you can use again and again. Each workshop includes a vegetarian lunch and time to enjoy our fledgling suburban homestead. Before you head home, take a walk on the nearby beach or explore the trail through the marsh by bike or on foot.

Waste Less, Create More

October 19 10am-1pm

Reducing your consumption and waste are important choices you can make for the health of the planet and your own well-being. But where to begin? We will talk about simple changes you can make to let go of your reliance on plastic and to waste less in your daily life. Then we will explore the way that wasting less provides nearly unlimited opportunities to be more creative and connect more deeply to the things we put on and in our bodies and homes. We will put these ideas into practice while make yogurt and body butter, you’ll take home samples as well as the recipes and the skills to do it again. We’ll further engage our senses while making our own beeswax wrap to get you started on low-waste, plastic free living. We’ll gather for a homemade vegetarian lunch before you head home with your new skills, ideas, and inspiration.

What you get:

  • A morning of relaxation and connection.
  • A resource booklet with information about waste free alternatives.
  • Recipes and instructions so you can make everything again when you go home.
  • A sample of homemade yogurt, body butter, and beeswax wrap.
  • A delicious lunch.
  • Unlimited inspiration for low-waste, high-creativity living!

Cost: $75
