Trust brings Workshops to South Taranaki

Exciting news! We are launching our first round of workshops in South Taranaki this November. Due to a fantastic uptake in New Plymouth with past workshops such as the DIY Toxic Free Cleaners, Fermentaste Tester, and Easy Cheesy selling out in record time, we felt it was time to spread the goodness to other parts of Taranaki. With the kind support of the South Taranaki District Council, the Sustainable Taranaki Workshops are now being offered at a very affordable price in Opunake and Hawera. Follow us on Facebook and Register your interest to be among the first to learn about upcoming workshops being offered throughout the upcoming months in New Plymouth and South Taranaki. 

Tickets go on sale on the 3rd of October at 8:15pm and can be purchased by visiting our Workshops page.

On 11th November, Krystel Watts from Watts Good Creations makes her third workshop debut, bringing her expertise to her hometown and leading 16 lucky participants in concocting their very own non toxic household cleaners. These are made from common ingredients that are much easier on the environment and our hands. DIY recipes will be shared, and there will be plenty of inspiration and ideas for more ways to live affordably and sustainably. What a great way to kick off the spring cleaning season!

Next up is the Composting, Worm Farms & Mulching workshop led by our very own team expert, Dee Turner. With a wealth of information to be imparted, and for only $5 per ticket, Dee will help garden enthusiasts and novices alike find ways to integrate composting, worm farming and mulching into a successful garden life cycle.  Dee will dig deeper into various methods to suit all types of backyard needs, and she will also explore ways to save waste and water in the garden. Workshop goers will discover a range of different composting systems and the ratios needed to create the correct balance in a hands on style of learning. Anyone who is keen to get started with worm farming will be well equipped to put their red wigglers to work straight after this workshop. 

Conversations around sustainable living are encouraged on the SLP Facebook page and suggestions are for future workshops can be emailed to
