I met MaryJane Butters at Where Women Create two years ago. I had been reading her magazine for several years and admire her not only for her passion for living the organic lifestyle, but that her magazine always highlighted other women. I had also read about her FarmGirl Sisterhood and decided to join.
A few months later I finally downloaded the catalog of Farmgirl “merit patches” (*Girlscouts for big girls), and was surprised to see there is also a catalog for boys and girls 6-13. What a great way to teach my granddaughters about the environment, sewing , cooking, and a variety of other skills. They too can earn their own merit badges.
Now, what to do first?
I decided on the “green living” and one assignment was to make my own laundry soap and share the recipe. So here you go!
