Sustainability Events Brochure: Get Involved: July - December 2016



Clothes Swap Party

Have you grown out of some of your favourite clothes? Or maybe you have
a pile at home that you just never wear because your style has changed?

Come along for some guilt-free shopping as part of National Recycling
Week. Get rid of clothes taking up your precious cupboard space and
collect some new, pre-loved clothes for free!

You will be given buttons as your currency depending on how many
items you bring. Please arrive at check-in time and hand over your
clothes for us to “set up show”! Remember the golden rule of quality
– only bring items you’d happily give to a friend.

Red Cross will be attending on the day to collect any leftover clothing for their shopfront. Feel free to bring any other donations for the Red Cross.

DIY Pickling and Preserving Workshop

Pickling and preserving are age old practices to sustainably keeping food
and reduce household waste. This workshop is interactive, hands-on fun
and based on the principle of sustainable eating.

You will learn how to pickle and preserve your favourite seasonal fruits and vegetables and enjoy them all year long. We will have a little Christmas twist on this workshop so you can create goodies to give as pressies and take home the knowledge to continue creating your own.

The Living and Learning Centre

180 Longueville Road, Lane Cove
