Making Soap and Soap Based Products
Saturday 19 September 1-3pm
How to make
soap - from the very basics -  simply and quickly. Easy to follow basic recipe with numerous variations.
  Plus - transforming a simple bar of soap into a range of alternative soap–based products (environmentally friendly detergent alternatives).
Please bring 3 recycled jars for your take home samples.
Cost: $10
Adelaide Hills Natural Resource Centre Inc. 1 Crescent Drive, Norton Summit 
Bookings: Contact Val 08 8390 1891 or email:

NB: If you are interested in soap-making from the very basics this workshop will suit you. It's my grandmother's method from many years ago.  Plus the Adelaide Hills Natural Resource Centre is a beautiful venue in the Adelaide Hills with wonderful views over Adelaide - only a short drive from the city (down Magill Road).  Val (the co-ordinator) offers a wonderful spread for afternoon tea - so the afternoon is well worth the drive.       Pam - The Shoppe 
Backyard Self-Sufficiency in my Backyard!
Sunday September 20 - 1.30-3.30 pm

  After a very enjoyable and successful workshop last Saturday in my backyard I'm running another workshop this coming Sunday. You are welcome to come along and enjoy the wonderful relaxing atmosphere (with compliments from Mother Nature of course!).
   My sweet peas are in full bloom, I have compost on the go, vegetables in containers, herbs, plus the workshop includes a section on ‘potting’ from cuttings and plants germinating in my backyard (my garden has a multitude of self-germinated plants - lettuce, spinach & rocket, flowers - so there is a huge range to choose from).   An old-fashioned country-style afternoon tea will also be provided (scones, jam, cream, homemade cake, sandwiches and more!).
Workshop covers:
• Simple vegetable growing (including containers)
• Composting for the beginner
• Creating an environmentally aware garden
• Recycling and reusing in the garden
plus - make and take home a Soap-based Garden Spray.  
Cost: $30 or $25 conc.  Booking details below.
Venue: St Marys (located a couple of streets behind the ex-Keith Bowden Electrical building off South Road).  Bus stop No. 20 (South Road)
Important - Don’t forget to bring a recycled jar (for you homemade insect repellent spray) and bags/containers (for your cuttings!)
