DIY enthusiasts, Make it Natural is calling for Soap Sovereignty in South Ontario! Let's get together, share personal care recipes, plant soap gardens, and plan skillsharing events and activities to spread the joy of natural, homemade personal care. Whether you make your own products already, or you want to learn how, this is the group for you.

Join our monthly Personal Care Skillshare meetups, where DIYers share their personal care recipes and make something together. If you make your own products, come share your recipe with the community. This pay-what-you-can (suggested donation $10-$20) event includes refreshments and snacks from local businesses and you (please bring something to share)!

Attend a Workshop to for in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience making soap, toothpaste, home cleaners, hair care products, and more. Our workshops are 2 hours or 6 hours - earn a certificate!

We always welcome volunteers, WWOOFers, Work Exchangers and Apprentices to join our various activities and projects. Learn more here: http://www.anarreshealth.ca/content/apprenticeship-and-work-exchange-application
