Cleaning Up with Herbal Soap

YAP handmade herbal soap

After spending most of the summer getting dirty, the Bennington YAP program started working with a “cleaner” side of gardening this fall: making handmade herbal soap.

With help from Jennifer Ufnar, assistant professor of biology at Southern Vermont College, Bennington YAP instructor Katherine Keys has been exploring the many ways to create fragrant herbals soaps. These soaps are all made by hand with pure ingredients. They are packaged and sold at Farmer’s Markets.

“[The student] has made significant gains in reading. Her MAP reading score in September was 156 and on the first percentile. We have just finished our spring testing and she is now on the 45th percentile with a score of 188. She is now performing at grade level. All around, she is much happier and confident. Her parents and I can see a big difference in attitude.”
