Learn how to make beeswax food wrap!

This past year I made the resolution to use less plastic.  I already have my cloth grocery bags, cloth produce sacks, reusable water bottles and glass food storage containers, but I really wanted to focus on reducing my dependence on plastic storage bags and plastic wrap.  My goal supporting husband picked me up a Beeswax Food Wrap and I instantly fell in love!  They are fairly easy to create on your own with minimal supplies. An added bonus is that they are easier for you to create in your own home, than at the nature center.  So this program will be in a learning from a distance format, which will result in a yard of reusable beeswax food wrap.  Once you have registered and paid the $30 registration fee for the class (via mailed in check or credit card over the phone) participants will select a time for curbside pick up the week of August 10 through the 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to receive your Beeswax Wraps supplies at the Grimes Farm Nature Center.  This will include most of the materials needed and a link to a YouTube video that will give you step-by-step directions.  You will need a few basic items from home including: access to the internet, parchment paper, an iron, scissors, older pot, and baking sheets. Take a step to help reduce your waste and register today! Pre-registration and payment is required to secure limited spots by July 24 before 4:00 p.m. by calling the Conservation Center at 641-752-5490, email mccb@marshallcountyia.gov, or text only 641-758-9777.  Pick up of supplies will need to be scheduled the week of August 10 through the 14 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This class is intended for participants over the age of 16.
