Sustainable Living on a Budget Workshop

Nurture will be hosting Monique Dupree's
Sustainable Living on a Budget Workshop:
**NOTE: This workshop will be held at a different location.**
Introductory Sustainable Living on a Budget Workshop
This workshop teaches you how to live sustainably on a budget. You’ll learn how to save money while buying local and organic groceries. Eliminate the need to go to the grocery store so often, simplify your cupboards, and purify your home by eliminating plastics and chemical based products and oh SO much more. We will “walk” through a typical home and discuss what is found in them that is not “green” and how to replace these items. You will be surprised how many items are petroleum based or sprayed with chemicals. You will leave with a wealth of practical information, a notebook full of resources and the knowledge to implement it in your life, and– you will see a difference in your grocery bill right away! Other topics discussed in the Intro. workshop include:

  • Save money on groceries and all household items, big and small

  • Eliminate trips to the grocery store

  • Shop and cook in season

  • What you can make from scratch that will save you $$

  • Elimate processed foods

  • Eliminating plastics (how to replace them with other materials) and purifying your home

  • Shop with alternatives in mind

  • The importance of daily and weekly rhythms

  • Conscious consuming

  • Small changes that have a big impact on the earth

  • Involve your children of any age in these daily tasks and much more..
