Save Your Scraps Workshop

March 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join ILACSD as we team up with the City of Encinitas to bring you the second of a three-part series focusing on conservation in your kitchen! On Saturday, March 2, 2019, we will be hosting the Save Your Scraps Workshop from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM at the EUSD Farm Lab located at 441 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas, CA 92024. The workshop is complimentary and open to the public!

Come by and learn how to set up your house for zero waste success! Visit educational booths addressing topics such as keep organics out of the landfill by shopping smart, storing food properly, and composting your scraps! Join us for this fun, informative workshop and participate in one of the hands-on activities including a ‘make and take’ project and an eco-friendly kids’ craft.

Make and Take Project: DIY Vermicompost Bins

Eco-Friendly Kids’ Craft: Creating “Eat Me First” Signs for Sustainable Food Storage

Raffle Prizes: Reusable Produce Bags and Beeswax Wraps (a great alternative to plastic wrap)

In addition, attendees can bring in gently used items you were planning to donate and participate in the Swap ‘n’ Shop! Participants can exchange or donate those items giving them a second life and keeping them out of the landfill. Some example items that have been brought to past workshops include clothes, nail polish, stereos, pet supplies, books, CD’s, picture frames, kitchenware, Halloween costumes, etc.

At the end of the workshop, 25 participants will be able to create and take home a fully-functioning vermicomposting bin. Please indicate your interest on the registration page. Participants will be added on a first come, first serve basis. Due to supply restrictions, we are limited to 25 participants. Please limit one per household.

See you there!
