Learn to get the most out of your food before it hits the compost bin as we prepare delicious and healing preparations from food scraps in this hands-on demo.
If you’d like to follow along and make your own preparation, please bring the following materials: 1 small-medium wide-mouth glass jar for each preparation (ball jars or recycled jars); raw honey and dried citrus peels (for preparations #1); apple cider vinegar and shitake mushrooom stems (for preparation #2); apple cider vinegar and rinsed, dried eggshell [try to leave inner membranes in tact] (for preparation #3).
