What’s it all about?

Been beating yourself up recently?

Thinking you could do more reduce your impact on the environment, save money and be healthier?

Well now is the time to make it happen! In this class you will learn smart tips that will help you do all three at once and have fun in the process. We will take a look at a few different techniques- some easy and some a little more involved – but whether it is cheese-making, seed-saving or bokashi-binning, you are bound to go home with at least one skill you can apply on a daily basis (willpower permitting).

What will we cover?

In the class we will cover:

  • Win-win tips that will save you money, reduce your footprint, and help you lead a healthier life
  • Seed saving (you’ll get to take some home!), sprouting, Bokashi bins, and urban foraging (yes – urban foraging!)
  • If there’s time and interest we will also discuss: making coconut milk, cheese-making, homemade icecream making, smart shopping, urban gardening, ‘preserving’, worm farms, sewing, cooking or anything else you can think of!

By the time you leave you will be able to live healthier, more affordably and tread lighter on the earth. And as an added bonus – there will be some home-brewed beer (made from scratch) to sip on during the class. Tasty!

Who will be teaching?

LoreleiLorelei Schmitt has been gardening and harvesting since she was born (or so it feels like), and she is continually learning new skills to up her DIY profile. She likes doing stuff herself, but has also found people think it’s cool, so she’s happy to share the tricks of the trade to anyone who wants to learn. She taught her boyfriend to homebrew from scratch and he’ll be teaching that class after hers.
