Festival of No Waste
In November 2017 we will be hosting our 6th Festival, each year has had a different theme and this year the theme is “No Waste”, something that we have always been passionate about and as many of you will know “Create No Waste” is one of the 12 Permaculture Principles.
It’s a it a HUGE subject that filters through into just about every aspect of our lives. We recently did a brain storm to get things started and came up with so many ideas. Food of course is a huge subject and includes everything from dealing with left overs, to where your food waste goes, using less disposable products in the kitchen and not buying food packaged in material that will head straight to landfill.
Then there’ s where we live…..
How can we make less wasteful homes, kitchens, bathrooms, toilets?
How can we support use of less wasteful building products?
How much energy, fuel and water do we waste?
How can we make parenting from nappies to lunch boxes a less wasteful experience?
Just a few of the ideas that popped up……as usual we want to make a positive festival rather than one full of negative information so get your thinking caps on and let us know what you do or what you could present on the day to show examples of how to Create No Waste.
How to up-cycle clothing
How to use reusable nappies
How to make wax food wrappings
How to Build a worm farm
How to make compost
How to use veggie oil for fuel
How to fix a bike
How to mend socks
How to make crazy musical instruments from rubbish
and the list goes on and on and on……
This is a community driven festival we provide the space, the inspiration, the promotion and the coordination, you create the rest. There is no cost to having a stall and we don’t pay anyone to present. There will be a door charge to cover costs and help us towards a much needed compost loo for future festivals.
Please spread the word and contact us if you would like to be involved in any way.
