Description
Our workshop program is our most popular activity with over 100 run in the past 18 months. We cover topics from our general ‘Sustainable living in Rental properties’ to lifestyle topics such as making your own jams and beauty products. With more requests for sessions in other cities (outside of Melbourne) and regional areas we’re struggling to run them all and need a few more hands on deck. We run workshops in different subjects, applications are welcome from those who have a little experience in all subjects or detailed knowledge in specific subjects. We pride ourselves on providing accessible, enjoyable workshops that aren’t a sales pitch or a sermon, the base premise and aim being that attendees may come for a variety of reasons, but they will leave at least thinking about sustainability.
