Free Recycling and Developing Skills workshop ...

You are here

Jupiter garden

... coming up on Wednesday 29 November, 10am – 3pm, at Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre, Wood Street, Grangemouth, FK3 8LH.

Recycling and re-using ‘waste’ and surplus materials makes a lot of sense, especially if you’re involved in a community, growing, school garden or conservation project. Recycling and re-using can reduce what goes to landfill, save money and energy, and provide new and useful products and resources for food growing and biodiversity. And there are opportunities for people, including those with additional support needs, to learn new skills and enhance their ability to work with others.

Recycled raised beds, garden furniture, insect hotels, bird boxes, plastic bottle greenhouses, composting etc - all add to the mix.  This free event will highlight some current projects and practices and is open to anyone working or volunteering in this type of setting who would like to learn more, or share their own knowledge and experience.  And what other community recycling activities are happening?  There will be input from TCV, Forth Environment Link and an experienced allotment holder. Plus, hear a few fundraising tips for waste reduction projects.  And after the ‘talky’ bits there will be a hands-on session where you can help biodiversity by making a mini bug box to take away with you.
