Whoever said you had to eat all your fruits and veggies
didn't know how much fun ~ and productive ~ it can be
to play with your food instead!

Add a twist to recipes shared with CSA members and newsletters subscribers
by adding arts & crafts and skin care recipes so unused produce doesn't have to be thrown out.
Because some people leave CSA's because their weekly shares are too much ~ this just might be
a value-added turning point to keep customers coming back to you for more.

Please add your own cool ideas!

ARTS & CRAFTS:

Vegetable dyes for clothing & accessories: shirts, totes, scarves, etc. Can also tie-dye.
Natural Easter Egg Dyes
Christmas Gourd Decorations
Natural dyes for painting: pictures, interior wallss, edible fingerpaints for kids, face paint, etc.
Vegetable dyes for sand art, sand candles, etc.
Natural Seed Jewelry
Natural Dyes for making candle/ soap colors
Leaf rubbing for kids
Pressed/ dried picture art
Pressed Plant Book


BEAUTY & SKIN CARE:

Natural Dyes for Hair Color
Avocoda Body Mask
Carrot & Honey Facial
Cabbage Face Mask
Spinach Mask
Sweet Potato Facial
Beet & Cabbage Skin Toner
... and so on.

BTW... what about juicing and/or smoothie recipes for the most common unused produce?
