Clutha District Council and Project Bruce invite you to a hands-on workshop with The Rubbish Trip about how to make easy snacks, treats and pantry staples from unpackaged ingredients.

Want to reduce your waste at home but not sure where to start? Often a substantial chunk of the waste in household rubbish bins is food and drink-related (whether the packaging food/drink comes in, or scraps and leftovers). This workshop goes straight to the heart of the issue, covering tips for low-waste food shopping, how to prepare everyday food from scratch using unpackaged ingredients, and how to avoid food-related rubbish when you're out and about. We'll all cook together with unpackaged ingredients, and generally have a great old time!

Our focus is on easy, affordable, nutritious versions of the kinds of packaged 'convenience' food and drink that most people consume regularly, including cereal, spreads, muesli bars, biscuits, crackers, dips, sweets, and hot and cold drinks.

The workshop will be delivered by Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, the two No-Waste Nomads behind The Rubbish Trip, who have been living without a rubbish bin since the beginning of 2015. They will also be doing two FREE talks about low-waste living at Milton Coronation Hall on Thursday 3 May at 7pm (see https://www.facebook.com/events/158841821481572/), and Taieri Mouth on Friday 4 May, at 7pm.
