Learn to Save Money in the Kitchen and Home! – January 26

On January 26th, Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market will host 2 DIY workshops to help Tucsonans stretch their dollars with homemade soaps and food preservation techniques.

From 3 to 4pm, Joyce Speirs from Dragnass Soaps will lead a workshop on homemade laundry detergent.

From 4 to 5pm, Tiffany Rose Wood, a local integrative nutritionist, will demonstrate how the use of dehydration and freezing techniques can allow us to preserve our seasonal foods longer while maintaining the food’s vital nutrients. Woods will also explain how these preservation techniques can help with meal planning to ensure you save time and money without letting any of those fresh fruits and vegetables go to waste.

The Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market is located at Mercado San Agustin, 100 S. Avenida del Convento, west of 1-10 near Congress/Grande. For more information please call 882-3304.

  1. I would love to attend one of these events. I consider myself to be an amateur Herbalist, I make my own yogurt and used to can all of my own homegrown vegetables when I lived back in Indiana. It sort of amazes me that you dont do these workshops after 5pm so those of us who work can attend. Is there anyway we can get an instruction manual or maybe you could video them and post them? I work every week day 8-5 as most of us who have jobs do…It would be nice to see you accommodate the working people to, we would greatly benefit from some of the knowledge you will be presening. I know how to make homemade laundry soap and love it! I dont know how to perserve food using dehydration.
    Maybe you can do one of these on a weekend!
