|Cheese making at one of our meetings this summer.|
I thought I would tell you all a little more about it in case you also might find this sort of thing useful and want to start something of this sort in your community.
To begin with to get a group together we simply announced it at church, invited friends and then I also told about it in our local homeschool newsletter. The first year we did also announce it in the newspaper but that never brought anybody to it.
We decided to meet weekly throughout the summer. I think this would also work nicely doing it monthly year round.
|Slicing up the cheese so that everyone can take a sample home.|
Some of the things we have done demonstrations/hands one activities have been Canning, Cheese making, Yogurt and Kefir making, Bread Making, Flower Arranging, Making Laundry Detergent, Making Lip Balm and a Lotion Bar, Sauerkraut making and more.
|Yogurt making and Healthy Snacks|
|Canning both green beans and dry beans.|
|The sauerkraut ready to sit on the shelf and ferment.|
Have you ever been involved with a homemakers group? Do you have any ideas for making it even better?
