We learned a lot on our trip to Kingsriver. We took part in three workshops. There was a green energy workshop, where we learned how to measure and conserve energy.

In the green build workshop we made clay bricks with which we could make raised beds. We learned we could make anything out of anything, for example we could make a bike rack out of old recycled bikes! In the green garden workshop we were shown how to design a self sufficient garden, and learned how to correctly plant herbs and small vegetables. We also found out how to care for chickens and how to practise water conservation by collecting rain water from old barrels.
