Get Clean­ing Nat­u­rally

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - ABBY BROWN

Af­ter a successful work­shop on sausage and salami, Tran­si­tion Mata­mata are look­ing for­ward to their next work­shop.

The next event on the agenda is John and Jackie Gi­eschen’s ‘Let’s Get Clean­ing Nat­u­rally!’ ses­sion set for June 25, which will run from 9am to noon, at Mata­mata Col­lege.

In this ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants will make their own castile hand soap from scratch us­ing all nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, Tran­si­tion Mata­mata con­venor Gord Ste­wart said.

They will also be shown how to make liq­uid soap, laun­dry pow­der, other nat­u­ral clean­ing prod­ucts, and nat­u­ral toi­letries such as de­odor­ant, mois­turiser, and sun screen.

In­gre­di­ents will be pro­vided, but par­tic­i­pants will need to bring some equip­ment and sup­plies. The work­shop costs $12. Ste­wart said Tran­si­tion Mata­mata’s re­cent work­shop on sausage and salami was a real hit.

‘‘Mel Priest’s foods class­room at the col­lege was the scene of the ac­tion.

‘‘It was full to ca­pac­ity for the ses­sion as Mas­ter Sausage Maker, Steve Simp­son, and Priest led par­tic­i­pants through the process.’’

He was grate­ful to the col­lege for tak­ing reser­va­tions for the work­shop and open­ing its doors for the evening.
