Small changes add up and that’s why Cessnock City Council’s Environment and Waste team is running a series of workshops for Cessnock Local Government Area households that will support sustainable living.

The first free workshop, Making a Household Budget That Works, will help participants make a budget spreadsheet, save money and distinguish between needs and wants. It’s on Wednesday 11 May, 7-8.30pm. This one is an online session.

The second workshop, Making Beeswax Wraps, will teach attendees the craft of creating their own reusable food wraps to help reduce the use of plastics in the home. This workshop will be held on Thursday 12 May, 10-11.30am.

If you have ever dreamed of having your own veggie patch the Growing Your Own Vegetables workshop is for you. It covers all the basics, as well as more detailed information about growing your own food. This workshop will be held on Sunday 29 May.

For those considering purchasing an electric vehicle, there will also be two workshops aimed at giving residents all the information they need to make an informed choice. These Demystifying Electric Vehicles workshops will be held on Thursday 9 June at Kurri Kurri Library, 1-3pm, and Cessnock Library, 5.30-7.30pm.

The final workshop, Farming for Now and the Future, is being presented in conjunction with Hunter Local Land Services. It will teach participants how to asses and improve the health of their properties. This workshop will be held on Saturday 25 June 2022.
