Celebrate Small Business Saturday with us! Our neighbors at The DillyBean carry products created in the Live Work Learn program. The Dryer Balls and Cat Toys sell out fast, so make sure you stop by soon!

Live Work Learn is an ASGCR-supported project. Their mission is to develop meaningful activities for individuals with autism. Their vision is to change the landscape of services for adults with disabilities. By creating a variety of modules, these adults will experience richer lives and greater opportunities.

In the Crafts module, they create these products from upcycled materials. Live Work Learn designs the crafting environment to help them develop skills. The instructions can be modified based on each individual's abilities. This way, they are both set up to succeed and challenged to grow. Currently, students from two school districts are participating in Live Work Learn twice a week. They really enjoy the satisfaction of seeing the product created from beginning to end!
