December 15th saw St. Kieran’s College in Kilkenny spend a morning at the Susliving Demonstration Centre. The students were keen to get stuck in to the workshops, and there was particular enjoyment to be had in the Repurposing & Recycling workshops. Clay brick walls built, pallet furniture created and clay plastering was applied over the course of an energetic day!
The students also partook in the Food, Let’s Garden workshop where they had a thorough introduction to growing food in small gardens, as well as the ideas and benefits behind composting. The final workshop was on Energy, in which the students took a break from construction to get to grips with energy use inside and outside, fuels and different energy sources.
