Fruit & Veggie Peel Crafts

On Wednesday this week, we're hosting our first Summer Series workshop on Starting A Garden From Food Scraps. There are so many things you can regrow using things you already have in the kitchen: dried beans, leeks, scallions, potatoes, ginger, turmeric, herbs, and more, which we'll show you on Wednesday. In case you're looking for more ideas to transform your food scraps into DIY projects, here are a few favorites from creative bloggers across the web.
