Sustainable Saturdays Summary Part 1

Wow how time flies! We have just completed Sustainable Saturdays session 4 Sustainable Eating!!!

Thanks to Jude Blereau of Wholefood Cooking we now all know the importance of eating seasonally, locally and organically for our health and sustainability!

We have two sessions to go as part of these series of workshops designed to build awareness of sustainability, get you RETHINKING, REFUSING, REDUCING, REUSING/ REPURPOSING, REPAIRING and RECYCLING.

On November 10th 2018 our workshop theme is Repair. Participants can bring along that pile of “to do repairs”… you know the one, we all have that stash somewhere in our homes!! Something needs gluing, sewing, opening, closing, fixing and it goes in that “to do” pile and often never gets done!! It will be repair cafe type style, so carry in items only.

December 1st 2018 is our final session on Recycling. There have been huge changes this year in the world of recycling, so we cover what’s in and out and some handy tricks to give our precious resources the best chance of being recycled.

There are limited spots available for these last two sessions so please book now
