The event has passed.

A day of collaboratively working together, learning and sharing new skills and contributing to long term positive changes within your lives and the climate.
Workshops include:
– Ferment your own food – learn to preserve surplus food, reduce food waste and keep your cupboards stocked up. Learn about fermentation processes and how they can improve your wellbeing.
– Make your own herbal remedies – learn about the healing power of herbs, spices and vegetables. Make your own fire cider and herbal tinctures.
– Sew/Knit your own clothes/gifts – learn to mend your own clothes, knit your own socks, blankets etc.
– Make your own soap – learn how to make soap at home. Freshly cooked, locally grown lunch will be offered with recipes to take home.
At the end of the day you will go home with what you created during the day, a pack of recipes about how to carry on at home and share with others. All food items will be sourced locally in collaboration with our local community shop and the Galloway Food Hub.
It is important to us to shorten food miles, support local businesses and encourage others to do the same.
The day is subsidised via funding from the D&G Climate Hub from the Galloway & Southern Ayrshire Biosphere and brought to you by the Hub at the Town Hall – A place for the whole family! Paving the way for a more resilient and sustainable community.
