The Green Fair

Here are some photos from our stall at the recent green fair in South Park, Darlington. The stall was a great success with food comparison shopping basket - locally bought vegetables from the indoor market compared with supermarket bought vegetables, the local basket had hardly any packaging (paper bag), was cheaper and had less food miles than that of the supermarket basket. We also highlighted growing food in large bags, the type that building materials come in. A lot of interest was generated in the possible scheme. We also had some photographs of bin bags out for collection and by explaining how people can minimises their waste this amount going to landfill can be reduced, a leaflet had been produced by the group to highlight waste minimisation tips and visitors were encouraged to leave us their tips and a prize was given to the most original idea. And we got some new members which was great.
