Butcher, baker…candlestick maker!
We are in the developing stages of a new client candle-making venture. Clients recently began learning about horticulture in the classroom, and they planted organic herbs as the first stage of the project. Once these herbs grow, clients will pick them and incorporate them into candles they are making. Clients will then go on outings to the store to purchase candle-making materials (mason jars, organic soy wax, and wicks). They will work with direct service professionals to warm up the wax and pour it into the mason jars – along with the herbs and wick – to create their very own organic candles. They will then decorate the candles and sell their products at local farmers markets. We are very excited about this project. Stay tuned for more information about the launch of the project and how you can contribute to clients’ success!
