(I think I am showing my age when the two exciting purchases for the day were a jar of chutney and two CWA tea towels.)
I spent a lovely three hours yesterday as an Earthcarer volunteer in the Landcare area (map E7) talking to so many interesting people about trying to reduce the amount of waste our households produce.
(I have borrowed this photo from their Facebook page)
The stall includes worm farms, wicking beds, using materials found in bulk rubbish, a small pallet garden and games for the kiddoes.
I spent most of the time yesterday talking about wormfarming and compost. Most people were interested but didn't quite know where to start, which is such a huge barrier. It can be daunting to change a habit of a lifetime. With a little reassurance and some information, I hope they left with a little more interest.
I am back there again tomorrow so I will remember to take some photos to give you more of a look around.
