Buy Nothing New this Christmas – and get thanked for it!!

There couldn’t be a better time to start gift-making than ‘Buy Nothing New Month’ (October) – a movement for conscientious consumption that highlights super alternatives to consuming more new stuff.

So, revive the true holiday spirit this year with a creative homemade gift, while cutting your costs.

This workshop will guide you through making several free, splendid gifts. Mix teas from dried herbs; create one-of-a-kind botanical cards from native pressed plants; create a puppet for the kids or a door snake out of recycled materials.

FREE workshop. Materials provided.
