Yes. I currently own a small business called Elsewhere Acres & Apothecary. Elsewhere Acres & Apothecary creates high-quality artisan soaps, salves, and other home and pet products using eco-friendly ingredients. As an educational farm, I would like Elsewhere Acres & Apothecary to also host workshops designed to deepen participants’ connection with the natural world through hands-on sustainable agriculture experiences.
