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.
