Living sustainably is something that I’m trying to achieve not only for the new year but for some time now. It’s a goal of mine to be able to reduce my carbon footprint. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not easy (like losing or gaining weight). It takes quite a bit of planning and you need the motivation to learn how to live green. It’s a huge commitment. As a start, Green Living for Free offers workshops to teach the public how to reduce waste, eat healthfully, and be one with nature. I was one of the lucky few who got to learn how to make soy milk, soy yogurt, veggie patty and a nifty fertilizer tool today. Be sure to “like” them on facebook and join their next event.

We used Camilla Seed Cleaning Powder to wash the dishes. Works really well.
Katie, our teacher showing us how to make a simple fertilizer tool using plastic bottles. Stick the bottle into the soil- top down. Throw in chopped up veggie and fruit peels.
All you do is cut the bottom off.
Don’t waste the product! All you do is cut the bottle in half and you can use up the rest of the product.
1/2 T plain yogurt and 2 T milk powder
Scoop in the soy milk and mix mix mix.
A important message that Katie shared, is to always pay it forward. What we learned today can be shared with others without the expectation of getting something in return.
