Event Description

This workshop is almost full.

In this Village Vancouver Eldergreens workshop with Lori Snyder, you'll discover how to make beeswax salves with infused plant oils. It's quick and easy, and beeswax salves have many different applications, including lip balms, natural skin care, hand salves and salves for wounds and sprains. Gardeners - you can make salves from your garden from a variety of plant infused olive oils blended into beeswax.

We'll have the Point Grey Village community seed library present, and you'll be able to get some free seeds - including pollinator attractant seeds - for your garden, or swap or donate seeds.

This workshop is by donation ($0 - $10). Free for Seniors (50 and over). Register by March 28th here or by email: ross@villagevancouver.ca.

Organized and led by seniors, VV ElderGreens brings seniors, youth and others together to share food and gardening skills and wisdom through workshops and other activities. All ages welcome, please contact us if you're interested in getting involved.
