Still out and about

Get Eco-Living
Treading Lightly Free Eco-Living Workshops are back in the Inner West with a great schedule of events running through July until early December. Following on from the fabulous range of courses held in the first part of 2014, the Ashfield, Burwood, City of Canada Bay, Leichhardt and Strathfield Councils are once again collaborating to bring practical workshops our way.



While there will again be some of the favourites of the last session of workshops - like 'Composting and Worm Farming', and 'Recycled Art Classes for Adults' - there are also interesting new topics this time around. Get in quick to secure a spot, keeping in mind that first priority is given to residents of the participating councils.

Here is a selection of the workshops being held:

DIY Woven Rag Rugs

Using recycled fabric easily found around the house, learn to weave rugs for your home.

Date: 10.00 - 1pm, Saturday 26th July

Bushcare Tour

Will involve a tour of bushcare sites from Cadigal Reserve to the Richard Murden Reserve, conducted by Bushcare Officer Adam Ward.

Date: 9am - 12pm, Sunday 17th August

New Plants from Old - Plant Propagation Techniques

Date: 9.30am - 12pm, Saturday 20th September

Gardening in Small Spaces

For those short on space, this workshop will demonstrate how it is possible to still grow plants at home, even if you have a limited area to work with.

Upcycled Xmas Ideas

A handy and practical workshop that will help you prepare for festive season present-swapping in an eco-friendly way.
