Just for you Green School parents, our first ever, practical, household focused, inspirational and fun workshop on green living. This exciting event will showcase all elements of how our households can be more earth friendly by making simple and accessible changes which will save you money. From what we eat and where we buy it, how we clean our homes and ourselves, through to managing waste and water, this event has it covered!
The Green School Student Village is a showcase of inspiration and will open the doors for us to explore all the practical and accessible ways we can make changes to every aspect of our households. We will share a morning snack and lunch together – all produced locally and sustainably – delicious!
