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 dyes for painting: pictures, interior wallss, edible fingerpaints for kids, face paint, etc.
Vegetable dyes for sand art, sand candles, etc.
