DIY Living with The Green Mama

November 16, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Doing it yourself is a way to overcome the expense of greener, healthier, lifestyles–and it’s fun! 

Manda Aufochs Gillespie is the author of Canada’s first green parenting guide: Green Mama. In writing the book she looked at today’s research, traditional wisdom, and interviewed scientists, inspirational entrepreneurs, and grandparents from around the world to help YOU become what you were always meant to be: expert on the care of your own family. This workshop is a mix of why, how, and hands-on.

Participants will learn the basics of protecting their indoor air quality, how to read the recycling codes, shop for better food on a budget, and many other healthy living tips.

The hands-on projects will include:

  • a cleaning product (and get recipes for more)
  • hand or baby bum spray
  • calendula oil (and get recipes and tips for lots more money-saving skincare products).

Participants will leave with know-how, recipes, a Green Mama book ($20 value), and their own products (see above: $20+ value)
