Event description

Welcome to The Coal Loader's Imperfectly Sustainable series - a monthly collection of hands-on sustainable living workshops, designed for everyone - no matter where you are on your sustainability journey! Just starting out, but no idea what to do? A super busy life juggler trying your best, but wishing you could do more? Or a seasoned pro, all over it for years? This series is for everyone. You don't have to be perfectly sustainable, you just have to be committed to trying. These workshops are designed to upskill, inspire and make you feel good about your imperfectly sustainable journey. You'll get better at reducing your waste, growing some food and nurturing your home eco-practices.
