During the walk, we will identify and collect edible wild flowers and herbs together, which we will use to make our handmade soaps.
You will learn how handmade soap is made. In particular, we will learn about the ancient method of making handmade hot soap and the method of regrinding natural soap.
At the end of the handmade soap course, we will conclude the experience with a small convivial moment. We will taste the biodynamic foods that we obtain from the processing of crops and animal breeding.

The Food Expert:
Our farm is above all a lifestyle. A few years ago, we decided to leave our jobs to move to Pedalino, in the Comiso countryside. We have started a multi-functional closed loop farm: so we can produce everything we need for our activity within the farm itself.
We grow biodynamic vegetables, a method of farming that encourages a view of each biodynamic farm as an integrated, whole, living organism. At the farm, you can take part in an interesting course on natural handmade soaps to learn how to make soap at home!
Cancellation policy: all bookings for the soap making for beginners course can be cancelled within 3 days from the start date of the experience. Read the Terms and Conditions.

We grow biodynamic vegetables, a method of farming that encourages a view of each biodynamic farm as an integrated, whole, living organism, and recommends growing vegetables in season.
We are very mindful of life cycles: for each work in our vegetable garden, we follow the phases of the moon. A practice that farmers have been using for centuries in agriculture to grow genuine vegetables.
