Speakers and Workshops
In 2012, speakers and workshops were based in the 'Carshalton Community Allotment' tent, near the Music Cafe. They offered advice and activities based around growing your own food - and activities for the little ones too! EcoLocal's Energy Road Show were also near the Music Cafe for examples and ideas on the practicalities of home energy conservation - save money / save energy / save waste.
Gardening can be a wonderfully satisfying activity for anyone, regardless of age and ability. Ecolocal have developed a community allotment where people can take part in gardening and learn hands-on skills. We run volunteer sessions on Fridays from 10.30am to 1pm and Sundays 1.30-3.30pm. Come and learn all about it!
