In the market for a new gang of plant babies for your deck or windowsill?
Wannabe gardeners can trade plants and cuttings for new varieties this weekend at Sustainable Sunday, a chill afternoon of eco-friendly activities at St Peter’s on North Main Street.
Organised by Cork Zero Wast, a group of volunteers working to make Cork a more sustainable city, the event on Sunday June 9th kicks off at 11.30am until 2pm, with loads of fun stuff planned.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag for swaps and goodies and a keep-cup to use at the café in St Peter’s.
Here’s the lowdown on what’s happening:
Bring up to three plants or potted cuttings to swap. Plants that need a bit of TLC will be happily accepted (but make sure it still has some life in it!).
Bring up to five items of preloved clothing (male and female) to swap. Make sure to bring clean, dry, un-torn, quality clothes only. Unsuitable items will be returned to owner.
Bracelets, necklaces, watches and rings (no earrings, for hygiene reasons), neck/hair scarves, sunglasses and handbags will all be accepted. Cork Zero Waste will also take old, unbroken prescription glasses which they will donate for re-use in developing countries as part of a Specsavers scheme.
Kids are invited to make something cool from recycled items from 11.30am to 2pm. It is open to the public and free admission tickets are available here along with more details of the event.
