Grow your own Skincare

Join us for this hands-on Capital Growth session at Whetstone Stray Allotments on the 6th of October 10.30am -1.30pm where you’ll learn how to make your own medicinal balms, deodorant and other natural skincare and household cleaning products, using some common herbs and everyday ingredients. Find out more about the potentially harmful ingredients in some shop bought products and how you can reduce your exposure. You’ll take away a goodie bag of the things you’ve made.

Helen and Donna both worked at the Women’s Environmental Network where the health team initially developed the workshop, which also highlights the potentially harmful ingredients in many mainstream products. WEN has campaigned against toxic ingredients in mainstream cosmetics products since 2000 and has worked to create innovative, fun and informative workshops on how to make your own skin care products to save money, reduce waste and help the planet.

Capital Growth was launched in 2008 and is a food growing network in London. It aims to support people to engage with food growing and farming in more sustainable ways, through training and events such as today, or in schools, and through connecting food growers in the city. Capital Growth is part of Sustain, which is a charity run by members and has lots of different projects to promote and campaign sustainable food growing and management at all levels–from better Food and Farming Policies to reducing food poverty.
