In October, Merici was awarded a Nude Food Week grant from Nutrition Australia to run two beeswax wrap-making workshops. Last week, we were lucky enough to have Gaby from the Canberra Environment Centre facilitating the workshops, where we learnt about preventing plastic use in the kitchen and made some beeswax wraps.
