North Olympic Land Trust is excited to host a soap-making class at Bent Gate Farm on Saturday, Aug. 25.
Come and enjoy the morning on a beautiful farm in Agnew while learning how to turn lard (straight from the farm) into all-natural soothing soap. This hands-on, outdoor class will be led by experienced soap makers Anna Swanberg and Terry Wilson. All materials and supplies will be provided.
Participants will leave with a recipe and the skills to make their own soap at home. Because of the curing process, participants will be able to pick up their soap at a later date.
We encourage participants to bring a sack lunch and beverage of their choice.
To ensure everyone can participate, the class size is limited. Please RSVP below to reserve your spot. A waiting list will be maintained in case of cancellations. The suggested $10 donation per participant will benefit local land conservation. Click here to learn more about the work of the Land Trust.

About the farm:
Grass fed, pastured based, diverse, sustainable, small family farm — that’s us. We live and grow our farm in Sequim Washington just east of Port Angeles in the northern rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains. The ground here is fertile, and irrigated while the climate is mild and perfect for year round pasturing. While we are not big enough to warrant the cost of becoming certified organic, we strive to abide by organic practices. Our animals are free from added hormones, antibiotics and raised in open space with plenty of room to roam and graze. We believe that pasture is the best and healthiest way to grow our meats and eggs. In addition to the animals we raise to sell, we have horses, turkeys, cats, dogs, honey bees and rabbits. We enjoy our family garden and orchard in the summer months and preserve as much of the harvest as possible while still maintaining our sanity. Click here to more about Bent Gate Farm.
