The Homegrown Collective, who kindly sent me this box to review, includes seasonally appropriate, professionally curated products that deliver the satisfaction of living a more self-sufficient & sustainable lifestyle to your doorstep each month.
The Homegrown Collective ships via USPS Priority Mail. My box actually arrived in November (it was here on Saturday), however, it is fairly standard for The Homegrown Collective boxes to arrive early into the next month.
I can never guess what the Homegrown Collective will do and actually can never even figure out what the projects are even when I see the materials. I actually need to read the information cards to figure it out! Whatever we were going to be making here though, I was liking it!
The November The Homegrown Collective theme was “almond de”light”” and included two projects: Evergreen Oil Candle and Oh My Cacao & Coconut Almond Milk! I didn’t snap a picture, but the box includes an summary page describing each of the projects, why they were included and the benefits of each.
Project #1: Evergreen Oil Lamp: Ahhh, I was so excited about this one that I forgot to take pictures of the materials used! It’s possible that this is my favorite Homegrown Collective project ever. It’s filled with all things holiday and is gorgeous. It took me two seconds to stuff the pinecones and other evergreen filler in, pour in the lamp oil and get the wick set up. Love love love. These would make an amazing and thoughtful gift this season too!
~Project #2: Oh My Cacao & Coconut Almond Milk!: I have not finished making the almond milk yet, but I think this is going to be a project L and I do together. The almonds need to sit in water for 24-48 hours and then the actual making of the milk can begin. It’s going to be fun to see what L thinks of this milk.
As usual, I didn’t do a value calculation for the November Homegrown Collective box since it would have been too difficult. I wouldn’t describe The Homegrown Collective as a “value box” by any means, but I always learn something new with each box which is what it’s all about.
Boxes are $48 /month and, of course, are even cheaper if you buy a 6-month ($39/month) or 12-month ($35.75/month) subscription!
