2019 Soap Making Workshops at Mountain Flower!
WHY Soap and Goats?
We love to teach people where their food comes from, and what their food can make! Animals are therapeutic and a goat snuggle is magical often causing excessive laughter. And, laughter is great medicine – that equals good clean fun!
Join Herbalist and Farm Hand Tzuria Malpica as she guides you through the process of making goat milk soap from scratch! You will learn the science behind soap making and experience the process from start to finish. This class will also include a farm tour of the dairy so everyone will have a chance to meet and snuggle the goats whose milk we will use! This is a fun behind the scenes look into the work of small scale agriculture to better help you understand the role goats play.
Each participant will get to take home their very own bar of soap. Participants are welcome to bring fun essential oils or dried flowers to personalize their soap.
Homemade goat cheese and other small snacks will be provided along with a warm cup of tea blended from the same herbal tonic we use to nourish the mamma goats – delicious!
Class is recommended for adults; Mature teens welcome. Special Family Classes indicated below.

Meet your teacher, Tzuria:
Growing up with the Rocky Mountains under her feet, Tzuria Malpica developed a strong connection to the Natural World. This foundation led her to pursue Herbal Medicine as a profession. For the past 10 years she has been practicing Herbal Medicine and teaching both adults and children the wonder of plant medicine. As an Herbalist Tzuria has run several summer camps, taught botanical medicine to home school students and high school students and uses her knowledge to inform everything that she does. She is passionate about holistic living and this is what draws her to small scale farming. She has a strong love for goats and is excited to share this with others through classes and workshops.
